Hi, All:
There may be several reasons for differences in the count for verbal  roots 
in Biblical Hebrew. One is that weak verbs (represented by only two  letters in 
the text) might be understood differently, as either medial yod/waw  or as 
final he, for example. Some medival grammarians asserted that BH has  biliteral 
rather than triliteral roots!
