Lexis Words and Roots

This table lists all 21,718 words in the Lexis database that descend from the 36 roots. If you want to find all of the Lexis words that descend from a certain root, search the Root field for that root. If you want to find out which root a given word descends from, search the Word field for that word; clicking on the root that is returned will take you to the appropriate map. Remember that many, many words do not descend from any of the 36 roots, so some searches may turn up empty.
