The moderators want you to sign your full name.

So far I have seen only two roots that you mentioned, and both of them

KWM is not a root attested to in Hebrew. Even if it is found in other
languages, to make it a Hebrew root is the same as inventing it.

HWH is not from )WH, neither is HYH. Both the forms and the meanings of the
words indicate that that cannot be accurate.

These two examples indicate the etymological error.
