dear, i think you mean a basic salt dissolved in water. A basic salt is the product of a neutralization reaction between a weak acid and a strong base. Hence, the basic attribute of the salt will be dominant, leaving the effervescent of the acidic property kinda recessive. To not sound in an odd way, NaBr should be a basic salt as it is the product of a weak acid and a strong base..... e.g. NaOH and HBr.... I'm not too sure about others but i feel NaBr is one of them... hope this helps
