If a macro turns \make{something} into 
\index{something}\textbf{something} and you want to have »somethings« 
(plural) in your text, then you /could/ (but should not!) write 
\make{something}\textbf{s} in the text.
This might look like \textbf{somethings} in the printout until you have 
a linebreak, but then you'll see that \textbf{something}\textbf{s} may 
or may not be hyphenated correctly.
