Inflectional forms of a word in English language RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    In our application we have a program to retrieve list of 'inflectional' forms of a word in 'English' language which is achieved by using SQL Server's "FORMSOF(INFLECTIONAL, "[word]")". For example if the word is 'beauty', the inflectional forms will be 'beautiful', 'beautify' etc.

    As per our company decision we are migrating from MS SQL Server to PostgreSQL. So, i am looking for similar feature in any of  C# or VB.Net . However most of the times I am getting results about stemming or lemmatization but not the reverse which is getting inflectional forms.

    So can anyone suggest any 3rd party plug-ins of C# or VB.Net  to get all inflectional forms of a word in 'English'?

    Thanks and Regards
