Yes, probably to connect with the first answer "caliente"

Probably just because chiles are somewhat symbolic of Mexican and Central American cuisine. 'Hot' as in spicy is 'picante'. 'Caliente' is for temperature.

Calor would be the direct antonym to frio. Caliente refers to the heat found in spices, not in temperature.

To Drayen: Not so. Hace calor (it is hot, as in weather); estoy caliente I am hot). El pollo es muy picante (the chicken is very hot [spicy] )

I say 'tengo calor' for when I'm hot (temperature wise). 'Estoy caliente' means I'm hot and bothered, to put it mildly.

I know this is old, but don't say "estoy caliente..." in English that's less "I'm hot" and more "I'm in heat..."

"Caliente" is used for the temperature of objects.

Would you accept flojo for the antonym of fuerte? Different use of fuerte, but still correct.

It took me a second to figure out what sense of "fuerte" you meant.

Nice 'n' easy, do more please!

I s'pose derecha is the only one in the feminine form to separate it from the sense of 'law' / 'right'.

On that note, I always found it interesting that Spanish and English (and others) have the same word for the direction right (derecho/a) and e.g. human rights (derechos humanos). It's a very interesting etymological journey that connects the two very different meanings.

Actually, it goes even further! (I'm not an expert, this is just my own research so feel free to correct me)

Start with the Proto-Indo-European of [reg] meaning to move in a straight line. This evolved not only into a lot of words for "straight" (Eng: di[rec]t, Sp: de[rec]ho, etc.) but also what is morally cor[rec]t (really it went through Latin first but...). So here we get right as "correct".

Since early Christians saw the right (as in direction) as good and the left ("sinistra" in Latin) as bad (à la Jesus separating the lambs to the right and the goats to the left). Also, with most people being right-handed, left-handedness was a mark of the Devil (leading "sinistra" --> "sinister" as in bad), the "morally correct" hand became the right hand.

Since people saw "rights" as things they were morally obligated to, it became "right" to give "rights". (think Bill of Rights = Bill of *what is right*).

Other fun words with the same root: rectum, surrogate, interrogate, rogue, and erect!

By the way... While débil in Spanish means "weak", in Slovak or Czech language it means "idiot"

The whole time I was thinking that 'Invierno' meant hell, so I didn't understand why 'Cielo' didn't work.

Turns out, it's almost the same...
