It's cold season. But is it though? The English word cold can mean different things, but in Japanese there are separate words for each kind of cold.
- Ambient temperature cold: 寒い さむい samui. E.g. "The air conditioning is on full blast! I am so 寒い".
- Cold to the touch cold: 冷たい つめたい tsumetai E.g. "Nothing's as good as a 冷たい beer on a summer evening". 冷たい is also used to describe emotions or people, e.g. She is such a 冷たい person.
- The cold malady: 風邪 かぜ kaze. E.g. "My throat hurts and I have a fever...I have a 風邪". (The term for 'get a cold' is 風邪をひく かぜをひく kaze o hiku.
Tomorrow: hot and warm.
