What word other than hot can I use to distinguish hot as in temperature from hot as in very spicy food?
Especially in connection with food, the word hot is very ambiguous (well, unless it's chili-spiced ice cream, I suppose).
Many other languages have a distinction and use separate words. What about English?
Clarification: I know that I can use the word spicy, I'm more interested in avoiding the ambiguity when using the word hot (meaning temperature). Perhaps that was unclear.
