Inculcate

Foreword
(nothing to say, really)

Definitions:
Princeton says
teach and impress by frequent repetitions or admonitions; "inculcate values into the young generation"

Webster says
to teach and impress by frequent repetitions or admonitions

My input
I wonder who took the definition from the other guy :p

Pronunciation
In as in in. Cul as in cull. Cate as in... Catelyn. (Rhymes with hate)
Apparently there are two accepted pronunciations, in regards to which syllable is stressed. 
Webster one and two

Synonyms
instill, infuse

Thoughts
I say throw everyone for a loop and stress the third syllable, hehe. But I prefer stressing cull because cull is a cool word. Cull story bro.
