Summary0000803: Compiler accepts plurals for nonexistent kinds
DescriptionSource text like the attached code is accepted despite the second line having no effect. A warning that the plural is unused (and possibly some explanatory text for this particular mistake) would hint that

- - - -
The plural of vertex is vertices.
- - - -

was meant instead.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
A vertex is a kind of thing.
The plural of a vertex is vertices.
There is a room.

There are 12 vertices.
Test me with "showme vertices".
Additional InformationQuite possibly a feature request instead of a bug.
TagsNo tags attached.
Effect(serious/mild) Game compiles but misbehaves

I'm not sure that the code is invalid, but I agree it's a compiler failure of some sort for that line to be accepted without the expected effect.

"The plural of a vertex is vertices." is now read as if it were "The plural of vertex is vertices."
