prodigy, portent, prognostication, presage, prognostic, omen
has glosseng: An omen (also called portent or presage) is a phenomenon that is believed to foretell the future, often signifying the advent of change. Though the word "omen" is usually devoid of reference to the change's nature, hence being possibly either "good" or "bad", the term is more often used in a foreboding sense, as with the word "ominous". [etymology: The modern word ‘omen’ and its derivatives (eg., ominous) are possibly derived from the latin word ‘omentum’ which means ‘apron’. An omentum is the apron like anatomical structure made of fatty tissue covering the intestines of most animals’ (or humans’) abdomen. The inspection of an animals’ omentum was a practice frequently used for thousands of years (spanning from Classical Greek society to the late Roman era) by priests in order to predict the future.

has glosspol: Omen (łac. przepowiednia, wróżba, znak) to zdarzenie lub zjawisko interpretowane jako zapowiedź przyszłych zdarzeń, dobrych lub złych. Przykładami są komety, które niegdyś uznawano za zwiastuny epidemii, wojen itp. Wierzono, że dziecko urodzone podczas burzy kiedy z nieba płynął ogień będzie miało cztery ręce i cztery nogi, a jeśli narodzi się pod niebem spowitym tęczą będzie miało dwie głowy. Typowym współczesnym omenem jest stłuczenie lustra, co ma zwiastować siedem lat nieszczęścia.
