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!
