In this part of the country, that's a hamburger patty or a chopped steak. "A hamburger" is the sandwich.If a hamburger is served on a plate(pic 1), it is not a sandwich. A "hamburger" is the cooked meat pattie.
An American, when asked "Would you like a sandwich?" would not "expect" anything. There are thousands of different kinds of sandwich. Some have meat. Some do not. Some are hot. Most are not. They all have bread, either above and below the filling, or only below the filling (an "open-faced sandwich"). But the "filling" can be almost anything: peanut butter and grape jelly, turkey, hot meatballs, ham, salami, pastrami, hot steak, cold beef...
The "combo" is the sandwich, a side order of french fries, and a soda. That combo (combination) has a cheaper price than the 3 items purchased separately. It would be clear on the menu: you would see the 3 items and the price.That seems illogical - or have I missed something? Isn't the combo the sandwich?
Not, I think, by ordinary people. Certainly not in Britain.Hi,
Is the hamburger considered a type of sandwich?
I'd appreciate your help.
No dispute with those definitions of slider, for an AE audience. However, many AE speakers will not think of hamburger when, out of the blue, you ask them "Would you like a sandwich?". If you are in a burger joint, you are more likely to ask for a specific burger, unless, in an even narrower context, you wish to distinguish the burger from the fries and drink.Dictionaries commonly describe the hamburger as a type of sandwich:
a small hamburger or other hot sandwich made with a soft roll
I had a barbecue pulled pork slider.
