Animus is a noun that refers to hostility or ill will. 

Our word of the day comes directly from Latin, but the word has shifted meaning a little. In Latin animus (AHN ee moos) means spirit or soul. Once imported to English, animus came to mean hostility or ill feeling. 

It’s unlikely that Larry harbors any animus toward me. He doesn’t seem like the type to be angry over such a minor affair.
