I would like an equivalent module/function which took a plural and returned its singular. Does such code exist? If not then please could you add it to the wishlist? Thanks.

Not in Lingua::EN::Inflect, I'm afraid. However you can almost get the right effect by using PL_V for nouns and PL_N for verbs. It's not perfect, but it often works. Show quoted text
