  Description     : Force number of words to singular or plural

 This module extends the functionality of Lingua::EN::Inflect (the
 liblingua-en-inflect-perl package) with three new functions.
 number() takes a word, and determines its number. It returns whether
 the word is singular, plural, or ambiguous for words that can be
 either singular or plural.
 Based on the number() function there are to_S() and to_PL() which
 take a word and convert it forcefully either to singular or to
 plural. In Lingua::EN::Inflect funny things happen if you try to
 pluralise an already-plural word, but this module does the right
