You should have fun, especially with the different spelling between English and American, although, you probably won't strike much English.

I can remember at age 6, getting a new picture book for Christmas,
When school started we had to learn to spell Bright, so, knowing the mew book backwards by then, spelt Brite,
Got the cuts/strap for miss spelling the word, and another set for telling the teacher she was wrong.
Took the book the school the next day to prove I was right and was told that "those people are just to lazy to learn to spell correctly"


I think it's more an example of the insipid laziness of marketeers trying to be "cute" and "clever," e.g.

This beer isn't tasteless yellow piss-water, it's 'lite!'
