Base = (1) the main part of something: ‘Most of the paints we produce have an oil base.’

(2) The lowest part of something: ‘The base of the column is made of marble.’

Basis = the very important thing from which something else develops or is made possible: ‘The basis of a successful marriage is mutual respect.’ ‘Newton’s discoveries provide the basis for future research.’
