[kuhl-puh-buh l] /ˈkʌl pə bəl/

deserving blame or censure; blameworthy.
deserving censure; blameworthy

late 13c., coupable, from Old French coupable (12c., Modern French coupable), from Latin culpabilis “worthy of blame,” from culpare “to blame,” from culpa “crime, fault, blame, guilt, error.” English (and for a time French) restored the first Latin -l- in later Middle Ages.
