ActiveSupport - Incorrect Inflectors for "nurseries"

Reported by noddy | November 22nd, 2010 @ 11:39 PM

I'm using rails 3.0.3 and as per the longstanding policy of not taking further inflector patches, I'm using the following initializer:

ActiveSupport::Inflector.inflections do |inflect|
 inflect.irregular 'nursery', 'nurseries'

Plurals are working fine

>> "nursery".pluralize
=> "nurseries"

however singular isn't working properly:

>> "nurseries".singularize
=> "nurseries"

    ActiveSupport::Inflector.inflections do |inflect|
      inflect.clear :uncountables
      inflect.irregular 'nursery', 'nurseries'

    As the above works, I assume the problem is "series" in line 54 in rails/activesupport/lib/active_support/inflections.rb

    inflect.uncountable(%w(equipment information rice money species series fish sheep jeans))

    • State changed from “new” to “duplicate”
    • Importance changed from “” to “Low”

    I know that this was first, but the other ticket has a patch, so it will be easier to discuss there. Closing as duplicate.
