[en] Possible rule: eat(s) antibiotics

See the sentence:

You must go to the doctor and eat antibiotics.

Could the English rules suggest replacing:
eat > take
eats > takes
?

Thanks!

I’ve just tried to check this for possible false positives.

This infection seems to eat antibiotics like candy.
So it’s better not to eat antibiotics for it.

But it doesn’t even trigger for the second line (or the original for that matter).

Agrh! The rule doesn’t find the errors because default="temp_off" is set. I should have waited until I have removed default="temp_off" before writing ‘done’. Sorry.

I will remove default="temp_off" after the regression tests.
