1. A broad term that refers to any supernatural/mythical being, the most common depiction of sprites being of elves, faeries, dwarves, nymphs, pixies, and mermaids, although it is used mainly for European mythical beings, rarely used for non-European ones, and rarely used to refer to spirits ("sprite" being derived from Latin "spiritus", obviously meaning "spirit").
2. A soft drink with a lemon-lime flavor.
I open a can of Sprite and, just as I tip it to my lips, a sprite darts out, swears at me, and flies off in a flurry of magic dust.
