Roots become sticky when we are dealing with weak radicals. Some forms of
the verb HLK make it seem like the root should be YLK, such as the hiphil
perfect: HWLYK /holich/ הוליך, which forms just like HWCY) /hotsi/ הוציא,
which has an initial yod. For the most part, remember HLK as the root of
this word, but remember that it can have forms that look like a peh-yod
verb. They are not separate roots. It is like the difference between YLD and
WLD. Obviously, the root is WLD, but most of the forms will be found with a
yod instead of a vav. We just have to remember that they are interchangeable
when we are dealing with root issues as they pertain to the forms found in
the language.
