For anybody who shares my sentiment, until Rails core decides it’s time to clean up their inflections, I’ve published a gem to provide more sane default pluralization/singularization rules: https://github.com/davidcelis/inflections
Here’s the difference:
4 pluralization rules (down from 21)
5 singularization rules (down from 27)
3 irregularities (down from 7)
1 uncountable (down from 10)
Ahhh. Much better.
