- v. Third-person singular simple present indicative form of inchant.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
As nothing inchants those people more than a style of metaphors and allegories, in which even their common conversation abounds, I adapt myself to their taste, and never please them better than when I give what I say this turn, speaking to them in their own language.
How then would it feast the souls of some people with delight and satisfaction, could they but once let go the shadow that inchants them, and gain a just apprehension and an adequate knowledge of the most laudable and illustrious excellency of all, a finished virtue?
