I have:

\newcommand{\alias}[0]{POS}

and use it as:

... \alias ...

I want to sometimes pluralize it, output as: ...POSs...

but this (obviously) doesn't work:

... \aliass ...

nor does this:

... \alias\s ...

nor does anything else I've tried. Presumably this is easy.


Never mind -- I figured it out but I don't know how to delete a question.

And \alias s? (a blank space in between). –  Gonzalo Medina Mar 22 '13 at 1:06

If it was a valid question, the appropriate thing would be to post your solution as an answer and accept it instead of removing the question, as it might help future visitors. –  Martin Büttner Mar 22 '13 at 1:09

Consider rolling back your question then include a minimal working example (MWE) to illustrate a use case then and post your solution as an answer in the Your Answer box. And welcome to TeX.sx! –  hpesoj626 Mar 22 '13 at 1:14
