And apparently 'rukou' is an example a dual preserved in Czech. The locative case when speaking about two hands (of one person is 'rukou', whereas of more people it is 'rukách')


the vestigial dual locative form "rukou" is applicable to attached limbs even when multiple people are involved. the regular plural "rukách" is also applicable either way (and to non-body situations).
