Constructor is a function that when called creates a new object (an instance of that class).

Inherited calls the Init procedure (in this example) in an ancestor class.

You have type structure like this
TSomething=class(Somethingelse);

Constructor is function that creates the Something:Tsomething.

inherited calls constructor of Somethingelse
and then you initialize or re-initialize vars of something.
Something have same vars and methods as somethingelse and some special vars/methods. Ask if you don't understand.
