I7 - Print name of a thing's kind?

Sorry if this has been asked before: “inform name of a kind” was rejected by the forum’s search function as containing only non-specific words!

Is there a way to print the name of a thing’s kind in I7? Ideally, what I would like is the ability to leverage whatever is used by the “showme” command, or to be pointed to the part of the documentation that explains how to do this if I have just missed it.

The idea is to be able to do something like this:

Instead of showing something to Bob, say "Bob says 'What do you have there? Some kind of [kind of the noun]?'"

Here’s a hack – haven’t tried it myself. (For your purposes something involving printed plural names might work with a bit of prose revision and a bit less hackery.)

Or, if you just want a few lines of code, see this thread: https://intfiction.org/t/the-kind-of-the-kind/6276/1

Many thanks to both of you, and to EU who posted the answers I was referred to. His extension at:

github.com/i7/extensions/blob/m … 0Kinds.i7x

looks like the thing to study.
