Questions about words we don't know exist? Ask them here. Hopefully, someone will be able to point you in the right direction. For instance .... Is there a word that describes the relationship between freezing and melting? What got me to thinking about this word is nothing other than Kool Aid. See, for some reason, Kool Aid freezes in my refrigerator. Milk, apple juice, even straight water don't. It's just the Kool Aid. (Okay, also root beer and orange soda.) Can I draw a simple conclusion from this? Well, it seems safe to say that Kool Aid has a higher freezing temperature than water. But, today, I set the pitcher out to thaw, and what I'm getting from it is a slightly syrupy, notably sweeter liquid melting off a core of ice that, as the process goes along, becomes more and more pale, as if the Kool Aid thaws more quickly at a given temperature than unadulterated water. So it seems as if a relationship between freezing and melting contracts when you introduce the powdered concentrate and sugar. On the one hand, I don't understand this, largely because I don't study the sciences closely. But it seems to me the problem I have describing the phenomenon is in part related to the fact that I'm trying to use a lot of words to get after what there might be a single word to describe. Or does any of this make sense?
