Now the VOA Special English program, words and their stories.

Cold weather has a great effect on how our minds' and our bodies' work. Maybe that is why there are so many expressions that use the word, cold. For centuries, the body's blood has been linked closely with emotions. People who show no human emotions or feelings, for example, are said to be cold-blooded. Cold-blooded people act in creul ways. They may do broval things to others and not by accident. For example, a newspaper says the police are searching for a cold-blooded killer, the killer murders someone not itself defends or because was reacting too anger or fear, he seems to kill for no reason and with no emotion as if taking someone's life minds nothing. Cold can affacted other parts of the body. The feet, for example, heavy shoes can warm your feet if your feet are really cold. what there isn't an expression to get cold feet that has nothing to do with cold or your feet.The expression means being a free to do something you had decided to do. For example, you agreed to be president of an organizition, but then you learned that all the other officers have reassigned. All the worker of the organizition will be your responsibility. you are likely to get cold feet about being president when you understand the situation. Cold can also affact your shoulder. You give someone the cold shoulder when you refuse to speak to them. You treat them in a distant cold way. The expression probably comes from a phasical act of turning a back to someone instead of speaking to them face to face. you may give a cold shoulder to a friend who has not kept promise he may do you. Or to someone who has a lie about you to others. A cold fish is not a fish, it is a person, but it is a person who is unfriendly and unemotional and shows no love or warm. A cold fish does not offer much of itself to anyone. Someone who is a cold fish could be cold-hearted. A cold-hearted person is someone who has no sympathy. Several popular songs in recent years were about cold-hearted men or cold-hearted women who without feeling, broked hearts of their lovers. Out in the cold is an expression of an heart. It means not getting something that everybody else got. A person might say that everybody but him got a pay raise that he was left out in the cold. It is not a pleasant place to be.
