mal-intent is a word, no?
I can't find it on dictionary.com, so I'm starting to think that I'm making up words. Is it not formal language? Urbandictionary says it's "malicious + intentions"... but that sounds cheesy... Is it really slang? :O
"Mal intent" is not generally hyphenated but written as two words. "Mal" is used in English but originates from French. In this case, it means "bad" so mal intent is a bad intention. Hope that helps!
