XF 1.5 Grouping similar tags such as plural / singular or tags with same meaning such as pudding / dessert


Formerly CyclingTribe
I've enabled tagging on one of my forums to better understand how it works and to get a handle on permissions.

One of the things that has quickly become apparent is that similar tags, for example singular and plural versions of words, or words that are interchangeable and mean the same thing, are treated as completely seperate tags.

Is there a way to group tags together such as (cookie | cookies ) (pudding | dessert | afters) or to use spanning on tag searches so it uses XFES to find sibling words?
