[tlhIngan Hol] {DeSqIv} and {noq}

Without assuming anything, we can be sure with the following:

a) Plural for body parts is -Du'.
b) Ho' follows a)
c) noq does not.

Sometimes we have to live with nonconsistent rules.

So when in doubt, use statement "a", because that's everything we have 
until we get other examples that may be different.

(Ho' and DeSqIv might be the exception, or noq and neb might be the 
exception. It may be mixed all around, with 'uSmey being correct and 
qammey being wrong - we do not know.)
