Pluralization

This format uses named categories to identify the different pluralizations of a key. The following categories are reserved for pluralization:

.zero | .one | .two | .few | .many | .other

Example key names:
inbox.messages.notification.one
inbox.messages.notification.other

This way pluralized keys can be identified, persisted and marked accordingly.
