SAT Word of the Week: BENIGN

The word benign means harmless or kindly. It is derived from the Latin word bene which means good or well.

We most often hear of benign attached to medical issues such as benign tumors or a benign mole meaning that it is not harmful. It can, however, be generalized to apply to anything from conversations to reactions.
