internal package Foswiki::Plurals

Handle conversion of plural topic names to singular form.

StaticMethod singularForm($web, $pluralForm) → $singularForm

Try to singularise plural topic name.
  • $web - the web the topic must be in
  • $pluralForm - topic name
Returns undef if no singular form exists, otherwise returns the singular form of the topic

I18N - Only apply plural processing if site language is English, or if a built-in English-language web. Plurals apply to names ending in 's', where topic doesn't exist with plural name.

Note that this is highly langauge specific, and need to be enabled on a per-installation basis with $Foswiki::cfg{PluralToSingular}.
