Just for the record, in case you haven’t seen the film, this is intentional and consistent throughout the script. Borrowers always mispronounce the Japanese for “human”.

As Ben said, this is no mistake; it is a constant of borrower speech adapted directly from Mary Norton’s original English language novels.

It’s consistent with the original books, which were written in English by an English bean.

In the book, this is the spelling that is used.
It’s not Engrish, just them taking into account a peculiarity of the book.

This is actually intentional, if you’ve ever seen the anime. It’s not Engrish.

This is not actually a mistake. It was intentionally put there because “The Secret World of Arietty’ is based on a book series.

in the series, the borrowers (little people) don’t know much about humans, so they mispronounce human being as human bean. Check wikipedia for more info.
