Rather than trying to break it into an array, you can examine the rightmost
character as follows
This checks if the last character is an s and if it is then set search to
the same string but without the s.. note, does not handle multiple word
queries.. for this you would need to break the string into words (something
you would probably have to do anyway) and do this for each of those...
