    Could an example be:

    Esto lo vamos a cortar de raiz:

    We are going to stop that from the very beginning.

    I don't know...
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."


    El Corán (libro sagrado de los musulmanes, recitado por Alá a Maomé en el siglo VI)

    Default Raiz

    Raiz is a root word (LOL) which literally means root.
    The phrase mentioned above if translated in american english would be to nip the problem in the bud. hope this helps.
