Recently, I have quite often been coming across the usage of the word
Britain where one would expect Briton - is this some sort of new spelling
trend, or is this a valid alternate spelling? It seems like a spelling error
to me. I have even found it in BBC news articles, where I would have thought
that the authors would at least be concerned with spelling errors, so
perhaps this usage has some sort of justification that I am not aware of? It
looks quite odd to me, anyway.
