Another week — another Spin Rewriter update. 😃
We've just pushed a new version of our pluralization engine to live Spin Rewriter servers, and it comes with a host of updates.
One of the things you'll notice is that we're now handling some corner-cases even better than before. That means when you start with the word "sometimes", Spin Rewriter will no longer offer (under any circumstances) the phrase "for a whiles" — because it now understands that "sometimes" wasn't plural in the first place, and that pluralizing "while" into "whiles" doesn't make a whole lot of sense. 🙈
It was actually quite fun chasing down these corner-cases and strange little bugs.
Have fun with the update!
