It's not really an official term tbh. Most of these aren't, but most will understand a depth pass for instance.

A base pass could be anything, but I suspect it's the act of rendering the ambient light first before doing subsequent passes with other lights, in a multipass rendering system.

Or at least that's what I call it when I do it :)
