I relayed your question to Dr. Okrand, who asked Maltz about it. I just got
his reply: {paSlogh} works like {ngop}.

{paSlogh} is an inherently plural noun, grammatically singular.  {tu'mI'}
the word for one sock.  The usual way to say "pair of socks" is {paSlogh
chang'eng}; {tu'mI' chang'eng} is odd, but if you said it, you'd be
understood.
