This is not true. The vast majority of Hebrew verbs have roots made up 
of three consonants, it is true, but the most basic forms e.g. qatal, 
yiqtol are in fact bisyllabic. Mor to the point, similarly for nouns: 
most are bisyllabic, although some are trisyllabic. So this argument in 
favour of a trisyllabic divine name is not a good one.
