    When describing a body, is the y axis the longest, the z axis the shortest? :P

    The y axis is the vertical axis, the x is the horizontal, and the z is the axis perpendicular to both the x and y axis. Which side is which for a specific object really depends on which way you hold the object.

    That is only one of many possible configurations.

    The X could be length, the y width, and the z height. It all depend on how you decide to align the coordinate system.

    The x, y and z axes have no definition other than that they are axes in the coordinate plane? It seems my education is sadly lacking.

    It depends entirely on who she is.
