Foment

Foment

<foh-meant>

instigate; incite; whip up;

to provoke someone into doing something.

I don't want to foment trouble between us. I will share my cookies with you.

Memory trick:
foment reminds of foam.
we get foam when we stir something.

At work:
He was trouble and would foment discontent in his fellow employees. Things are peaceful now since
he left.
