Lemma - What is the difference between word and lemma?


The uninflected or basic form of a word is called a lemma in the discipline of linguistics. However, there are many different inflected forms of a single word, and they all originate from the same lemma. As an example, the word "go" can be inflected into "goes," "went," and "going," and so on.
