Incorrect English grammar of plural "years" after a single year: "1 years ago"

See original GitHub issue

Issue Description


Seems this is returned from the date-fns formatDistance utility.

Maybe it needs to be specified to use the United States english locale? I see in date-fns master the en-US locale should display correctly… I haven’t compared versions to see if a update would fix this. 🤔

@Synsyxx You’ve got it. 💯Using formatDistance inside of Line 111, and taking out the word “years” would do it!

Fairly new to this sort of stuff, but if I’m understanding it right, should just need to replace 111 with formatDistance? Or maybe distanceInWords? Just reading over the docs for date-fns to try to understand how it works.
