9th Lexember Word

okkó [o̞ˈkːo̞ˑ], alienably possessed noun: “warmth, heat, high temperature“

This noun is quite simply the opposite of yóy, and refers to warmth as a concept, as a property that things can have. As with yóy, okkó is not used to indicate a warm sensation (that’s aróm), nor is it used to indicate warm weather (that’s ankaróm).

Interestingly, okkó refers both to “comfortable” warmth and to “uncomfortable” heat, i.e. it refers to any high temperature regardless of whether it is simply warm or scorching hot. However, it’s still possible to distinguish between the two, as we’ll see with the next Lexember words :-).
