    Thanks Anglika for your reply.
    These verbs are new to me. Do they mean someting like 'lessen or weaken'?

    Is it also possible to say 'it dulls their imagination'?

    Re: imagination

    Stultify means to prevent something or someone from developing into the best possible state
    Stunt means to prevent the growth or development of something from reaching its limit

    Yes, you could say "dulls the imagination".
