Can I use if-then-statement inside a text field?

I have a little text block saying how many people in a spesific found set where the number is a merge field. If it is one person, the word after it should be in singular, if it is more than one person, the word should be in plural. This can be done in many ways, but I also wonder generally; how can I tell filemaker that some function is coming, rather than straight text? The merge field starts and ends with << >>, I guess something similar can be used to use functions?? I have not found anything anywhere about this… Maybe it can't be done?
