Lingua::PT::Inflect - Converts Portuguese words from singular to plural
use Lingua::PT::Inflect; $plural = sing2plural('programador') # now holds 'programadores'
Converts Portuguese words from singular to plural. There may be some special cases that will fail (words ending in -ão or -s might fail, as many special cases are yet to be prevented; anyone volunteering to look at a huge list of words?)
Creates a new Lingua::PT::Inflect object.
If you're doing this lots of time, it would probably be better for you to use the sing2plural function directly (that is, creating a new object for each word in a long text doesn't seem so bright if you're not going to use it later on).
Converts a word in the singular gender to plural.
$plural = sing2plural($singular);
