So you want to remove any suffix that could be appended to a word to get the "base word"?

The term you are referring to is known as "stemming" and there are external libraries for helping you with this advanced topic. The Snowball project is one of the more popular and PECL [pecl.php.net] has a version in it's
text -> stem
package.
