Could anybody tell me the difference between Cool and Cold.
Thanx in advance
In terms of temperature, cool is a bit less cold than cold is, if that makes sense. I would say a day of 10 degrees celsius might be 'cool', whereas 0 degrees would definitely be 'cold'.
If you're talking about a person/thing - be careful "she's cool" means she's a fun/hip person, whereas "she's cold" means she's a bit distant/unapproachable/formal
"Cool" is a softer, "smaller" degree of "cold". You often may hear of something being "pleasantly cool".
Welcome to the forum, B2vin.
As part of the process of helping people with the English language, we ask that those who pose questions observe the rules of writing in their posts as well.
In line with that, please note that the "cool" and "cold" to which you refer are apparently adjectives and not proper nouns. Thus, they should not be capitalized.
Thanx 4 ur timely reply friend.

Also, not that "to cool" is a verb. Cool down. I want to cool off. The pies are cooling.
But there is no verb "to cold". You'd say "to get cold"
Separate names with a comma.
