I’m not even sure the proper term for what I’m trying to accomplish, but there are objects that are always pluralized, even when singular (ex. jeans, handcuffs, pants).
I’ve seen people handle this in Inform and other adventure languages as “a pair of pants”, “a pair of handcuffs”. It works, and keeps things sane: You see a pair of green pants here.
But no-one really talks like that. The “right” output to me is: You see green pants here.
I can’t figure out how to tell Inform to remove the article entirely when referring to these sorts of objects.
