So I assume the usage of the term "radical" in Samuel Lee's grammar (below) is different. I assume he does NOT mean root letters.
Lee lists a select number of what he calls "servile" letters (משה איתן וכלה) and then says the others are radical, but clearly these so called "servile" letters also function as root letters. Are you familiar with Lee's usage of radical and servile?
