KGT 50:  The usual plural form of {mang} [soldier] is a different word altogether: {negh} (warriors, soldiers)... All of the {negh} together make up something called a {mangghom}. Literally, this is `warrior group' or `soldier group,' but it is usually translated as army.

N.B. Do not confuse {mangghom} with {mangHom} "cadet"!
