Wordsmith.org Forums General Topics Words and languages in schools Base Word vs. Root word (or root)
Roots are also base, being all covered in dirt and such. Latin radix, radicis, (whence English radish and radical), Greek ριζα (rhiza), and German Wurzel are all cognate: from PIE *wrād- 'root' (also here).
