I have quite a lot of pages with plural named titles, eg widgets.

If a mention a widget and want to make it a link I have to put [[widgets|widget]].

I know there is a pipe trick to give a singular title a plural link: [[widget]]s

Is there a similar shortcut to make a plural title singular?

Not a major deal, I just seem to be doing it a lot and I would hate to think I am missing an obvious trick somewhere.

No. If you really want you can write a template that containes something like [[{{{1}}}s|{{{1}}}]] and is called like {{p|widget}}. Probably does way more problems than worth it though. Or you can make a redirect from widget to widgets.

(FWIW the pipe trick and the link trail are different things.)
