[en] false positive: use base-form


(Lodewijk Arie van Brienen) #1

In the following sentence (part of a series of 'nonsense' questions)
"Will pigs ever have wings?"
pigs is mistaken for a verb, and the rule erroneously marks it as needing to be put in the base-form.

removing "ever" 'fixes' the issue, so I think it would be best to have the rule treat "ever" as a pseudo-verb.

Fixed (https://github.com/languagetool-org/languagetool/commit/2b71dbda10a58f0662f95a793d4fa79ce19d6dc9).
