They are akkadian terms, if I am correct. They are like Binyanim. G-Stem is like Pa'al 
(Grundstam)

I recommend the following site if yuo know nothing of Akkadian and want to get into it.
http://saturn.sron.ruu.nl/%7Ejheise/akkadian/

The particular subsection below answers your question in detail.

G-Stem is Pa'al, and D-Stem is Pi'el. Basically
