cutting/ trimming yellowing leaf on amazon sword
Do I cut the whole stem of the yellow leaf or just cut the leaf off?

If you really feel weird about it take a picture and we can give u better advice.
On a healthy sword, new leaves will emerge from the centre of the crown. The older outer leaves will eventually yellow and can be removed as others have mentioned. Growth can be intermittent or somewhat steady. Intermittent means the plant goes through growth spurts with rest periods in between; during the growth several new leaves may emerge in succession. Some plants tend to send out a new leaf now and then.
