Are the descriptions of temperature like; 'Hot' 'Cold' and 'Warm' all relative like the descriptions of size; 'Big' 'Small' etc?

yes they are relative terms :)
we take liquid nitrogen and ice
we knw both are cool
but liquid nitrogen is way more cooler cause it has very low temperature
so we can say that ice is hotter :)
But 'coldness' had a limit to how cold it can get, 'smallness' doesn't have a limit to how small it can get.

so relatively, all temperatures can be considered warmer than something but they cannot be considered colder
but hey we don't say anything hot or cold according to some rule
rather we say an object hot when we feel it warmth on touching it
an object can only be hot to us if it has temperature greater than us
so its relative we jst anything is hot or cold according to what we feel
so it is relative but not in the exact same way as size...
Size has no constant reference point unlike tempreture
can u gimme an example of what u call big anf what u call small :)
elephant and ant respectively :P
if u were a whale then will u call the elephant big or small :)
I am not seeing your point, you seem to be saying that they can both be compared within each other but that doesn't show how temperature can be relative.
like if they were not relative then there must be some certain height or temperature above which or below which w wuld call something hot/big or small/cold
but is there anything like that
the answer is no
another such relative term is time :)
