Dear Harry,

     There are similar alternating usages found in Sanskrit as well and
authorized by Panini, for example -

विभाषौषधिवनस्पतिभ्यः ८।४।६

काशिकावृत्ति - वनम् इत्येव। ओषधिवाचि यत् पूर्वपदं वनस्पतिवाचि च तत्स्थान्
निमित्तादुत्तरस्य वननकारस्य णकार आदेशो भवति विभाषा। ओषधिवाचिभ्यस् तावत्
दूर्वावणम्, दूर्वावनम्। मूर्वावणम्, मूर्वावनम्। वनस्पतिभ्यः शिरीषवणम्,
शिरीषवनम्। बदरीवणम्, बदरीवनम्।
