lightroom keyroom hierarchies fail on duplicates

I set up a hierarchically organized keyword set.  For example, it had a set labeled animals which was subdivided into nouns, adjective etc. and then the particular item.  the same for people, society and so on.  Some sets, such as animals and manmade things had only nouns, others had nouns, adjectives, adverbs, etc. (Another set contained all the verbs.)

some sample entries:

animal - noun - tiger

money - adjective - cheap

money - noun - price

manmade thing - noun - house

manmade thing - noun - window

After I began keywording the pictures i realized that when i marked 6 windows as  window or 8 as house, instead of showing up in the correct hierarchy, the keyword was being added to the first set that included the subcategory noun.  so i now have entries like:

animal - noun - house  6

animal - noun - window 8

The correct keyword grouping - manmade thing- noun - house and manmade thing - noun - window show as 0.

I want the final keywording to show the major category (manmade thing), the primary keyword (house) and the part of speech (noun).  if the part of speech is the lowest category, it wont be included if i select the primary keyword.

How do i fix this?
