Correct spelling, explanation: incorporate comes from Latin incorporare. The root of this word is corporate (Latin corporare) with the prefix in-. The prefix in- can give two meanings to a word, one of which is in. Therefore, while corporate means to combine into one, incorporate is to introduce sth into an integral body.
Encorporate is thus a mistaken form.
Definition of incorporate:
verb, to introduce as an integral part

Incorrect spelling, explanation:
