various possessive forms of irregular plurals are flagged as misspelt. e.g. men's, women's and so forth. Attached is a patch for scowl/src/add-affixes add-possessive to loop through the plurals of Nouns and for the ones that don't end in s add the possessive form of that irregular plural as well

    At fist glance your patch looks good.

    I am slightly concerned it might be added too many possessive forms. I spend a lot of effort to remove invalid possessive forms and don't want to undo that.

    A list of new words that your patch adds would help alleviate my concerns and expedite inclusion of the patch.

    Thank you for the patch.

    I ended up not using it but did something similar which is now committed to SVN (rev 179)
