That's Super!

The prefix, "super," comes from the Latin and means, "on top of," "beyond," and "beside." Nowadays, however, the prefix also means, "higher in rank, quality or degree" (e.g.: superstructure), "to a high degree or in excess" (e.g.: superabundant), and "to express addition (e.g.: supertaxation).

Other words that have the same root include, superb, superior and supervise. There are many others; can you think of any more?
