Should the Mada of (7:41:7) not be غ و ش instead of غ ش و?

This word (7:41:7) is the plural of غاشية which is the measure of فاعلة. (Plural measure فواعل) Another example is the word داعية from the root ( د ع و). The plural is دواع. Other words with a similar measure:

فاكهة singular فواكه plural ; صاعقة singular صواعق plural.

(ف ك ه) and (ص ع ق).

So the letters alif and waw are not part of the root.
