Tag naming conventions & handling plurals

This may be obvious but what is the correct way to handle tags that may be pluralized? I am assuming it is with a page alias. Is this the right idea?

# today.md
- [[idea]]: USB-D

# yesterday.md
- [[ideas]]
  - a good steering wheel that doesnt fly off the window while you are driving

# idea.md
alias:: ideas

That’s how I’ve been doing it, including plural, flection, and eventually also translations. Works well so far. With the exception of custom queries, alas, which do not account for aliases. :-/
