I had no luck in Google with this because I couldn’t come up with a phrasing that addressed what I was trying to ask.
In English, we use the word “cold” to mean a minor, routine seasonal illness- “I have a cold.”
Do other languages use their translation of “cold” in the same way? Would a German say “Ich habe ein kalt?” Or is this a strictly English construct?
If this is common I’d be interested in as many specific examples as people have
