import Pluralize

"Person".pluralize()
// People

"Wolf".pluralize(count: 1)
// Wolf

// Persons

Examples

Irregular Nouns Always Singular in Form

Adding Custom Rules: Singular = Plural

Pluralize.unchanging("shrimp")

"Shrimp".pluralize()
// Shrimp

Adding Custom Rules: Uncountable

"Water".pluralize()
// Waters

Pluralize.uncountable("water")
"Water".pluralize()
// Water

Adding Custom Rules: New Regex Rule

"Person".pluralize()
// People

Pluralize.rule("(p)erson$", with: "$1ersons")
"Person".pluralize()
// Persons
"Spokesperson".pluralize()
// Spokespersons

Example Regex Rules:

Pluralize.rule("(criteri|phenomen)on$", with:"$1a")
Pluralize.rule("(potat|tomat|volcan)o$", with:"$1oes")
Pluralize.rule("^(|wo|work)man$", with: "$1men")
Pluralize.rule("(f)oot$", with: "$1eet")
Pluralize.rule("lf$", with: "$1lves")
Pluralize.rule("(t)ooth$", with: "$1eeth")
Pluralize.rule("(g)oose$", with: "$1eese")
Pluralize.rule("^(c)hild$", with: "$1hildren")

Adding Custom Rules: Whole Words
