    That the original pronounciation of this noun was "abd" is clear  from: 

  A. declensions in MT Hebrew -- "abdi" etc. 

   B. from Arabic where this form is preserved to this day. Compare the PN "Abdallah".

   ..."m:lakim ("kings") (from "*malkim", here with a patah)."....

  This too is simply the typical double plural of M. segohlites, where the long vowel, in this case Qamatz under the L represented the last vowel of the first plural, to which the standard   --IM  was eventually added.
