Hmmm.. A Cathedral is the Church of the bishop. I'm not too proficient in Latin but I can see the root word "cathedra" which is a reference to, I think, the "seat or chair" of the bishop.

Basilica I think is a reference to the house of the King?? Not sure..

the linguistic difference is that Cathederal derives from Latin, while Basilica derives from Greek.

Cathederal derives from the latin for throne

Basilica derives from the greek basileus which means king.

A basilica was originally a court of justice, deriving from the fact that such courts presided based on royal authority. These buildings, or the architecture of these buildings were later used as churches and thus basilica became a name for a church.
