Initial inference

Looking at the ending, “tion,” this word seems like a noun. After breaking this word into pieces such as com-punc-tion, I get reminded of the word “puncture” from the middle word. Maybe this word means:

A serious drain of something.

noun | kum-PUNK-shun

  1. a) anxiety arising from awareness of guilt

I would use the word in a sentence as follows:
