Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g36 Greek: agenes

Base, Baser:

"of low birth" (a, negative, genos, "family, race"), hence denoted "that which is of no reputation, of no account," 1Cr 1:28, "the base things of the world," i.e., those which are of no account or fame in the world's esteem. That the neuter plural of the adjective bears reference to persons is clear from verse 26.

2 Strong's Number: g5011 Greek: tapeinos

Base, Baser:

primarily "that which is low, and does not rise far from the ground," as in the Sept. of Eze 17:24, hence, metaphorically, signifies "lowly, of no degree." So the RV in 2Cr 10:1. Cp. Luk 1:52; Jam 1:9, "of low degree." Cp. tapeinophrosune, "lowliness of mind," and tapeinoo, "to humble."

3 Strong's Number: g60 Greek: agoraios

Base, Baser:

translated in the AV of Act 17:5 "of the baser sort," RV, "of the rabble," signifies, lit., "relating to the market place;" hence, frequenting markets, and so sauntering about idly. It is also used of affairs usually transacted in the market-place, and hence of judicial assemblies, Act 19:38, RV, "courts" (AV, "law"); the margin in both RV and AV has "court days are kept."
