I know that bases are chemicals which can neutralise acids and produce a salt - but what exactly makes a salt a salt?

Are they like just any ionic compound in a solid form? Or is it just anything made from the neutralisation of an acid and alkali

Moved to chemistry.
Yeah pretty much, it's an ionic compound formed from an acid and base (alkalis are just soluble bases)
