Teaching Notes. Re: displayed.: The bound base play$^1$ is a homophone and homograph with the free base play$^2$, as in “to play the game.” Other than their spelling and pronunciation, the two words are not related: The bound base play$^1$ comes from a Latin word meaning “to fold” which also is the source of the bases in such words as apply, complicate, employ, explicate, replay. Play$^2$ is from an Old English word that meant pretty much what play means today.

Re: reduction. The base is the free base duct, as in “air duct.” It carries the root meaning “lead, direct” and is closely related to the bound base duce (produce, introduce, educate).
