S,M,L,XL vs Hot to Cold.

This week I started reading two similar books on architecture. 'S,M,L,XL’ by Rem Koolhaas of OMA and 'Hot to Cold’ by Bjarke Ingels of BIG. Both books describe the projects of the architectural practices behind the books.

S,M,L,XL was published 1995, 20 years after founding the practice and covers just over 30 design projects over 1376 pages.

Hot to Cold was published 2015, 10 years after founding the practice and covers 60 design projects over 711 pages.

Since both are written in English, which is foreign to me. Below are the lists of words I had to look up from similar sized introduction to both books:
