The PluralizationService class applies English rules for constructing plural and singular forms of words. To extend the service to other languages, use the PluralizationService on the EntityModelSchemaGenerator class.

Both the IsPlural and IsSingular methods can return true for the same word. For example, both methods will return true for the word "fish".
