It just occurred to me if I were to encounter a word like, say "malaĉa", how should I read it? Is it the opposite of "aĉa" and therefore "bona" or is it "malbonega" (because of "mal" + "aĉ" )?

"Malaĉa" would mean "bona." "Mal-" by itself carries no negative connotations -- it merely signifies the opposite. Note that "male" doesn't mean "poorly" or "badly" but rather "on the contrary." If you're looking for a different word for "malbonega," you could use "aĉega", or possible "mavaĉa" or "mavega."

If someone said "mavaĉa" or "mavega" to me, I'd suppose that they have a speech impediment. I wouldn't understand it.

Mala isn't a quality, or mali an action or malo a thing, about which you might express disapproval

Therefore any analysis along the lines applicable to ruĝaĉa, pluvaĉo, faraĉi k.s. is inappropriate.

Exception: perhaps if editing a dictionary of antonyms, you might want to remove the mal-aĉoj the unsatisfactory maloj.

Malaĉa can only be read as the opposite of aĉa.

If an esperantist calls you "malkreteno" will you feel it as a compliment or as an insult?
