Yesterday’s word

The word algid means “cold”

First usage

Our word came into English in the early 1600s

Our word is the only English word that comes from the Latin word algēre (to feel cold). Our word is also used to describe a severe form of malaria, marked by prostration, cold and clammy skin, and low blood pressure.
