Could I please get guidance on whether the following sentence uses the word "compunction" correctly? I have confused myself; can a person have too much of a negative feeling?
-- She desires to be a femme fatale, but has too much compunction.--
Also, if a person has many compunctions, do they have multiple feelings of guilt that are different from each other, or just alot of the same type of feelings of guilt?
Your sentence seems fine to me.
I have never heard the word compunction used in the plural. I always thought that compunction, like pride, has no plural form.
