Summary0001225: Ex. 348, "Copper River," contains an is-are applied to a list
DescriptionIn Copper River, the following line of code:

if the noun contains something interesting:
say "[A list of interesting things in the noun] [is-are] in [the noun]";

is presumably meant to print "is" if the list contains one singular thing and "are" otherwise. But the is-are agrees with the last item in the list.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
Running example 348:

throw powder at Fiona/take salmon/open cabinet/take descaling solution/put salmon and solution on shelf/search 
Additional InformationOutput of the last command:

>search shelf
A very scaly salmon and a bottle of descaling solution is on the shelf (alongside assorted dull items).

[numerical is-are] is also wrong, because the "say a list" phrase does not set say__n. (Maybe it should?)

This is all now done with adaptive text, so the issue doesn't arise.
