As we are currently enjoying a heatwave in Sweden, it made me think of the different words for, or related to, being hot. As in temperature hot. Not sexy hot. This is what I came up with:
Het – hot
Varmt – warm and also hot
Stekhet – ‘frying hot’
Tropisk – tropical hot
Brännande – burning hot
Glödande – glowing hot like embers in a fire
Rykande – smoking hot
Svettig – sweaty
Febrig – to have a temperature. Can also mean horny apparently, a bit like the American ‘hot and bothered’.
Fuktig – humid (not what you were thinking it meant). Also means damp.
Can you think of any others to add to the list?
