Here is another word that I really like, perhaps also because it reminds me of the gameshow Jeopardy! that I used to watch as a kid.
When we talk of “danger” in the definition, it is not necessarily mortal danger, it can be, but it definitely doesn’t have to be. You might jeopardize your education if you don’t study; you can jeopardize your health if you smoke; you can put a project in jeopardy by neglecting to get help when you need it.
Have a look at Jeopardy!, the gameshow, I used to absolutely love it and felt so smart when I got a question right!
