Get the list of english words originated from a common root

Hello Oxford Community,

I've integrated Oxford Entries and Lemmatron API with my Android Application.

There is one use-case which says "Given a origin root of any english word, get a list of other english words originated from the same root."

How can I fulfill this use-case?

    Hi @asapra170 !
    Welcome to the community :)
    Let me ask our technical team, they will get back to you with an answer to your question soon.

    Hi @asapra170 ,

    There is no such feature currently, however, you are not the first person to ask so I have made a note which will hopefully bump it up the list of development priorities.

    Hi again @asapra170
    Could I ask for a little more detail on your app?

    Since what you asked about is not something currently possible, our technical team is considering this as a suggestion for a potential improvement.

    So it would be useful for us to understand why you want that functionality. If we know a bit more about that then we can make a better judgement on how we integrate it into the API, should we choose to do so based on how valuable this functionality would be to yourself and others.

    Cheers! :)
