“I’m always cold”

The French person might wonder whether there were people who don’t have a word for the kind of person who always seems to be a little cold like their word frileux. Yet English doesn’t – we have to say, indeed, “I’m always cold.” Yet few would propose that this is because the French are more sensitive to breezes than others. Clearly, that the French have a word frileux and we don’t is just a jolly little accident, as is the fact that Swedish happens not to have a word for wipe. Let’s not even imagine telling the Swedes they don’t wipe.
