Danger means being at risk or exposure to liable harm.

Etymology

From Middle English daunger (“power, dominion, peril”), from Anglo-Norman dangier, from Old French dangier, alteration of Old French dongier (due to association with Latin damnum (“damage”)) from Vulgar Latin *domniārium (“authority, power”) from Latin dominus (“lord, master”).
