The word monster derives from the Latin word for "omen," from the root "to warn" and also meaning "prodigy" or "miracle." The term refers to a being that is a gross exception to the norms of some ecosystem. A person referred to as a monster is taken as exceptionally evil, grotesque, unreasonably strict and uncaring, sociopathic, and/or sadistic. The word monster connotes something wrong or evil, e.g., a monstrous being is very morally objectionable, physically or psychologically hideous, or a freak of nature.
