#WordOfTheDay – Learn what malign means

Medieval(4)

We see that more people are checking out the WordOfTheDay series! Nice.

Our word for today is ‘malign.’ Who has heard it before? It’s a pretty simple word and is pronounced as /muh-lahyn/.

Malign is both a verb and an adjective. As a verb, it means to speak evil of someone or to defame someone while as an adjective, it means having or showing an evil disposition. 

Here are examples of this word in sentences;

It is wrong for that editor to malign an honorable man.

No one would have thought that the president was a part of that malign conspiracy.
