It would be even better if there was a way to make it do plurals.

    Either use a dictionary that already has plurals in it, or use the following preprocess function:
    use Lingua::EN::Inflect qw /PL/; sub preprocess { my $file = shift; open my $fh => $file or die "Failed to open $file: $!\n"; local $_; LINE: while (<$fh>) { chomp; $_ = lc; next if /[^a-z]/; WORD: foreach ($_, PL ($_)) { $valid {$_} = 1; while (length) { next WORD if $prefix {$_} ++; chop; } } } }
