How can someone (*cough* Microsoft *cough*) have the balls to try to patent something like this?
Found on the US Patent Application site..[SIZE=+1]Method and system for selecting and conjugating a verb [/SIZE]
Abstract A verb conjugating system allows a user to input a form of a verb and display the verb forms. The verb conjugating system allows the user to input the infinitive form or non-infinitive forms of a verb. When a user inputs a non-infinitive form of a verb, the verb conjugating system identifies a corresponding base form of the verb. The verb conjugating system then uses the base form to retrieve and display the verb forms for the verb. The verb conjugating system may highlight the non-infinitive form of the verb within the displayed verb forms to assist the user in locating the verb form of interest.
