Running through a few examples from the manual, cannot get tokenize to work. Here is a paste from irb:

2.0.0p195 :005 > require 'treat'

2.0.0p195 :006 > include Treat::Core::DSL

 => Paragraph (70247709531120)  --- "A walk in [...] a boat."  ---  {}   --- []
2.0.0p195 :023 > Treat.core.language.detect = true

2.0.0p195 :035 > sent = "This is an English sentence, prove it to me!"

This seems like it's the language detection feature causing the bug. Does the bug disappear if you remove Treat.core.language.detect = true ?

I actually wanted to use the treat gem for language detection of user text input. Without language detection i get "english" for all sentences. e.g.

2.0.0p195 :009 > puts "El mundo de hoy no tiene sentido".language
 => nil

Has anyone found a solution to this? On my Mac language recognition doesn't seem to work:

Treat.core.language.detect = true
a = "I want to know God's thoughts; the rest are details. - Albert Einstein"
b = "El mundo de hoy no tiene sentido, así que ¿por qué debería pintar cuadros que lo tuvieran? - Pablo Picasso"
c = "Un bon Allemand ne peut souffrir les Français, mais il boit volontiers les vins de France. - Goethe"
d = "Wir haben die Kunst, damit wir nicht an der Wahrheit zugrunde gehen. - Friedrich Nietzsche"
puts a.language    # => nil
puts b.language    # => nil
puts c.language    # => nil
puts d.language    # => nil

Before that I did a

require 'treat'
Treat::Core::Installer.install 'german'

Is there something else required for language recognition to work?
