      The Bug:

      The subtitle produced when goats' horns break off doesn't contain a possessive apostrophe where appropriate and incorrectly capitalizes the word "Horn"

      Possessive apostrophes are normally used to indicate possession of a person, place, or thing, however, this isn't present within the subtitle produced when goats' horns break off. Because of this, the affected subtitle is grammatically incorrect. Additionally, the word "Horn" shouldn't be capitalized within this string as in this context, we're referring to the goat's horn and not the goat horn item itself.

      Below is a table I've constructed that highlights this error and shows the inconsistency that's present here. You can find information about what the current and expected strings are and would be, along with their translation keys.

      Affected Strings:

      Before reading the table, please note the following:

      • Words colored in GREEN are correct.
      • Words colored in RED are incorrect.

       

      Translation Key Current Subtitle Expected Subtitle
      subtitles.entity.panda.pre_sneeze Panda's nose tickles Panda's nose tickles
      subtitles.entity.warden.heartbeat Warden's heart beats Warden's heart beats
      subtitles.entity.warden.tendril_clicks Warden's tendrils click Warden's tendrils click
      subtitles.entity.goat.horn_break Goat Horn breaks off Goat's horn breaks off

      Steps to Reproduce:

      1. Ensure that you have subtitles enabled in your accessibility settings.
      2. Produce the affected sound as listed above by using the command provided below.
        /playsound minecraft:entity.goat.horn_break master @a
      3. Watch the subtitles overlay closely and pay attention to how the subtitle is formatted/presented.
      4. Take note as to whether or not the subtitle produced when goats' horns break off doesn't contain a possessive apostrophe where appropriate and incorrectly capitalizes the word "Horn".

      Observed Behavior:

      A possessive apostrophe isn't present and the word "Horn" is incorrectly capitalized.

      Expected Behavior:

      A possessive apostrophe would be present and the word "Horn" wouldn't be capitalized.
