Why あつい is not right?

It is hot. あつい。

It is not hot. あつくない。

opposite.

Ok, but why is あついないです wrong? I thought that in Japanese, a double negative makes for a strong negative...

If I want to say that I'm/it's not cold, would it be correct to say あついではありません ? Or is あつくないです the only way to say that? Thanks in advance!

あつくない is negative form of あつい

I really wish they would be more consistent when they accept kanji in the answers.

I typed 熱くないです cause I wasn't checking if it was the right kanji, and it was counted correct. What's the difference between 暑い and 熱い ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Swisidniak

熱い is hot to the touch (It has the 'fire' radical 灬 )
暑い is hot weather/air/atmosphere (It has the 'sun' radical 日)

I see, thanks! I did find it weird there were apparently two words for cold but only one for hot x)
