COLD, a.

1. Not warm or hot; gelid, frigid; a relative term. A substance is cold to the touch, when it is less warm then the body, and when in contact, the heat of the body passes from the body to the substance; as cold air; a cold stone; cold water. It denotes a greater degree of the quality than cool.
2. Having the sensation of cold; chill; shivering, or inclined to shiver; as, I am cold.
3. Having cold qualities; as a cold plant.
4. Frigid; wanting passion, zeal ro ardor; indifferent; unconcerned; not animated, or easily excited into action; as a cold spectator; a cold Christian; a cold lover, or friend; a cold temper.

Thou art neither cold nor hot. Rev. 3.

5. Not moving; unaffecting; not animated; not able to excite feeling; spiritless; as a cold discourse; a cold jest.
6. Reserved; coy; not affectionate, cordial or friendly; indicating indifference; as a cold look; a cold return of civilities; a cold reception.
7. Not heated by sensual desire.
8. Not hasty; not violent.
9. Not affecting the scent strongly.
10. Not having the scent strongly affected.

COLD, n.

1. The sensation produced in animal bodies by the escape of heat, and the consequent contraction of the fine vessels. Also, the cause of that sensation. Heat expands the vessels, and cold contracts them; and the transition from an expanded to a contracted state is accompanied with a sensation to which, as well as to the cause of it, we give the denomination of cold. Hence cold is a privation of heat, or the cause of it.
2. A shivering; the effect of the contraction of the fine vessels of the body; chilliness, or chillness.
3. A disease; indisposition occasioned by cold; catarrh.
