    I should also point out that including the pluras es form is sometimes not desired. For example, if we had car|automobile we would get: Sally cares

      I should also point out that including the pluras "es" form is
      sometimes not desired. For example, if we had car|automobile we would get:

      Sally cares {automobile} about her dog.

      But for that matter, the "s" form has the same issue, just in lower
      quantity. Thus, it's a question of what's better - smaller dictionary,
      or dictionary with every valid permutation.

      (Or even, just do only "s")

      His cat let out a loud hiss.

      his|owner

      His {owner} cat let out a loud hiss {owner}.

      The "s" case would be pretty rare, however. (The "es" not so rare.)
