This gave me an idea: 
I've now checked all .itely files in the user manual using ispell with the 
american dictionary. Patch is attached, but please double-check all changes 
before applying. 
Several typos found, also lots of inconsistent British vs. American spelling 
(in particular -ise/-ize and -or/-our)

Some notes:
-) Grammatically, the plural of ambitus is also ambitus, so I rephrased the 
sentence with "ambiti" (which would be the wrong declination)
-) Is the plural of "volta" really "volte" or rather "voltae" (repeats.itely)
-) Shouldn't we write UNIX consistently in capitals? Similarly, MacOS/MacOs is 
spelt inconsistently...
