What is the meaning of the English word… CULPRIT?
(countable noun) the one responsible for the crime (i.e. the bad thing that happened)
1. We don’t know who robbed our store. We’re trusting that the police will find the culprits.
2. Some people have a way of making you feel guilty, even when you are not. My boss, for example, always looks at me like I am some kind of a culprit!
3. There are no cookies left! Who is the culprit?!
(Note: Because culprit is an overly strong word to describe someone who has eaten all the cookies, this is humour.)
