If you’re like me and like warm weather, raise your hand.
קפוא comes from the active-simple פָּעַל intransitive verb to freeze – לִקְפּוֹא.
קָפָאתִי מִקּוֹר. I froze from (the) cold. Mind you, that’s to freeze – just to freeze. But to freeze something else – that’s לְהַקְפִּיא, an active-causative הִפְעִיל transitive verb.
Here’s a song by Danny Sanderson with the word קפוא in it. Enjoy!
