Dictionary - English conjugator

I am making EN>LV dictionary for Kindle. I found a database from an old Stardict program that is free of copyright and have figured out the mobi dictionary format and the conversion process and it already works on Kindle.

The problem is that the dictionary file is rather simple and does not contain any word forms. I mean, there are no plurals, no -s or -ed verb forms and consequently Kindle doesn't react to such words. Does anybody know a script that could be used to automatically generate all forms for a given EN word to be included in the mobi dictionary?

On http://cpan.uwinnipeg.ca/chapter/Str...xt_Proc/Lingua I found Lingua-EN-Conjugate and Lingua-EN-Inflect. Nouns and verbs are now covered.

However, I can't find adjective conjugator, i.e., good > better > best. Any ideas?

@karunaji

Take a look at AGID list (Automatically Generated Inflection Database) at http://wordlist.sourceforge.net/
It worked great for me.
