The plural form of the word yaD used in slang for "sword" is not explained. But as this word is not derived from the body part meaning, but is derived from the Krotmag dialect pronunciation of the word yan, it is assumed that the plural form is not the one for body parts. Compare the shift from yanmeyyaDmey. There is no reason to assume this is yaDDu', just because of the coincidental meaning of yaD.

The plural form of the word yaD used in slang for "teenager" is not explained.
