- malign[malign 词源字典]
- malign:  Malign comes, probably via Old French, from Latin malignus ‘wicked’. This was derived from malus ‘bad’, a word of unknown origin (some have tried to link it with English small). Malus is of course the starting point for a wide range of other English words, including malady  (ultimately from Vulgar Latin *male habitus ‘in bad condition’); malaise  (which originated in Old French as a conflation of mal aise ‘bad ease’); malapropism; malaria; malediction  (etymologically ‘evil saying’); malevolent  (literally ‘wishing evil’); malice  (from Latin malitia, a derivative of malus); and malingerer  (from French malingre, which may have been a compound of mal- and haingre ‘weak’). Malignant  comes from the present participle of Latin malignāre ‘act with malice’, a verb derived from malignus.
