We have the word K"LEYHF in Ex 39:37.
I'm wondering whether the yod is radical or not.
Because the word comes from K:LIY  (Jer 18:4).
Usually these yods placed before the suffixes are the mark of plural. But 
here the yod is also part of the basic word.

Would you say that this yod of the word in Ex 39:37 is radical?
Or you would rather say it is the mark of plural?
Or, maybe, a melting of both (root consonant + plural marker)?
