I just received my word of the day. malaise (muh-LAYZ) 1. A vague feeling of discomfort in the body, as at the onset of illness. 2. A general feeling of depression or unease.

Don't eat the malaise sauce, as it may make you sick.

There is no such sauce. Although I may have used the word incorrectly in the sentence, it is, after all, a sentence – deserving of the same rights attributed to any other syntactically independent grammatical unit. A sticky issue I know, but nonetheless one that we all must consider. Carry on!
