More Information

The plural form of neb with -mey is an exception to the common rule that metaphorically used body parts retain their body part suffix -Du'. In the case of neb in the sense of "nozzle" the word has become lexicalized as such using the suffix -mey. (This is one of those because-it-is situations.)
