    I don't like hot weather or cold one.

    Hello.

    Please look at the sentences below.

    1. I don't like hot weather or cold weather.
    2. I don't like hot weather or cold one.

    Does #2 work?

    If I understand it correctly, the pronoun 'one' is used as a substitute for a countable noun.
    (I'm not confident about it, but I don't think #2 would work for the reason.)

    Thank you.

    You are right. #2 is not possible.

    Thank you, 5jj.

    #1 is rather wordy, so I'd like to change it a bit.

    Does "I don't like hot or cold weather." work?

    Thank you.

    Re: I don't like hot weather or cold one.

    Yes, though I'd say "I don't like either hot or cold weather" or "I dislike both hot and cold weather".

    Re: I don't like hot weather or cold one.

    It seems like you don't like weather at all.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Re: I don't like hot weather or cold one.

    I guess it is also correct to say "I like neither hot nor cold weather".

    I guess the OP likes warm weather.

    Yes — or temperate weather.
