pluralize()


Global Helpers String Functions string controller model mapper migrator


Returns the plural form of the passed in word. Can also pluralize a word based on a value passed to the count argument. CFWheels stores a list of words that are the same in both singular and plural form (e.g. "equipment", "information") and words that don't follow the regular pluralization rules (e.g. "child" / "children", "foot" / "feet"). Use get("uncountables") / set("uncountables", newList) and get("irregulars") / set("irregulars", newList) to modify them to suit your needs.
