In a synonym dictionary, I came across the word "inspirit", which is said to mean "enliven". https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/inspirit

However, then I stumbled across the word "enspirit".

I want to ask is this a difference between British and American English, or are there slight, subtle differences in the meanings to these two words?


I had to look up "inspirit". I didn't remember the word at all. I think it's very rare. "enspirit" was not in thefreedictionary.com.

Today we generally say "inspire" rather than "inspirit". I think the meaning is basically the same.
