Culpable

Culpable

<kul-pah-bul>

guilty; responsible; liable;

blame that is earned or deserved.

The dog is culpable in the disappearance of the cake.

Memory trick:
culpable reminds of gulp.
we gulp or swallow hard when we are guilty.

At work:
We are not culpable for the loss of the money. We can prove it and we can get it back for you.
