    Thank you for your message. However, I'm not quite sure what you are asking us to do. We already have 'dampener' with this sense in our dictionaries. This is how it appears in English to Spanish, for example:

    damper,
    also UK: dampener
    n
    informal, figurative ([sth]: lowers mood) (figurado)arruinar vtr
