English has super-plurals:
rgb knows this, but he was pretending like he doesn't use "all-y'all"
all the time...
Anyway, the reason I suggested the OED is that they often have early
usage quotes, which may well include examples of 'codes'. I can only
access the free version, which shows that they do have the definition,
but doesn't include the examples.
