The '''root''' is the primary [[lexicology | lexical]] unit of a [[word]], which carries the most significant aspects of [[semantics | semantic]] content and cannot be reduced into smaller constituents. [[Content word]]s in nearly all [[language]]s contain, and may consist only of, root [[morpheme]]s. However, sometimes the term "root" is also used to describe the word minus its [[inflection]]al endings, but with its lexical endings in place. For example, ''chatters'' has the inflectional root or [[lemma (linguistics) | lemma]] ''chatter'', but the lexical root ''chat''. Inflectional roots are often called [[stem (linguistics) | stems]], and a root in the stricter sense may be thought of as a monomorphemic stem.
Roots can be either [[free morpheme]]s or [[bound morpheme]]s. Root morphemes are essential for [[affixation]] and [[compound (linguistics) | compound]]s.
