Skill is the root skill type. Similar to how all enchantments are spells, everything in your Skill Bar is a skill. Since "skill" is the most general type, only effects that mention "skills" (as opposed to any other, more specific type) will affect basic skills. Conversely, something that affects things with skill type "skill" will affect any skill.

For a list of all skills of type skill, see Category:Skills by type.
