How would you naturally say that something is "under threat"? For example:

  • The delivery is under threat
  • The contract is under threat
  • The agreed deadline is under threat

There are verbs like 脅かす{おどかす}and 脅迫{きょうはく}する, but I think they are used in cases of physical danger like natural disasters for example.

How about 「[脅威]{きょうい}にさらされている」, 「[脅]{おびや}かされている」 or 「[危機]{きき}に[瀕]{ひん}している」?


You can also use 「[危]{あや}ぶまれる」or「[危]{あや}ぶまれている」
