Mid-16th Middle English.

Why this word?

Seriously? “Coolth”? Why not “coolth”?

It’s hysterical; hysterical that a word like “coolth” exists. “Warmth” is a crazy-looking word enough on its own, but to have a rhyming opposite makes me crack up.

It just looks so… so lazy.

I love it.

How to use the word coolth in a sentence?

Example: “The coolth of the evening was a welcome change from the unbearable heat of the day.”
