Wow, I wasn't aware that this kind of thing gets into the 3.7 update
stream until today. I was thinking that it is better for it to reside
out of the main stream image, and somehow imagining that it does a bit
better job anyway...
'city' asPlural => 'citys' (facility, lady, ...)
('day' asPlural => 'days') (toy, key, ...)
'fox' asPlural => 'foxs' (box, bus, flash, ...)
'knife' asPlural => 'knifes. (wife, wolf, scarf, ...)
('roof' asPlural => 'roofs') (chief, ...)
'tomato' asPlural => 'tomatos' (potato, ...)
('piano' asPlural => 'pianos') (cello, ...)
'fish' asPlural => 'fishs' (deer, sheep, ...)
'man' asPlural => 'mans' (child, mouse, foot, ...)
'stimulus' asPlural => 'stimuluses' (...)
I guess that learning the irregular plural, (and especially the
rules for irregulars) were important for non-native speakers, but
probably not for the natives...
Do you guys mind if I take it out from the coming 3.8?
