    under, and E. over. See {Over}, and cf. {Hyper-}, {Sub-},
    {Supra-}, {Sur-}.]
    1. A prefix signifying above, over, beyond, and hence often
       denoting in a superior position, in excess, over and
       above, in addition, exceedingly; as in superimpose,
       supersede, supernatural, superabundance.
    2. (Chem.) A prefix formerly much used to denote that the
       ingredient to the name of which it was prefixed was
       present in a large, or unusually large, proportion as

       superphosphate. It has been superseded by per-, bi-, di-,
       acid, etc. (as peroxide, bicarbonate, disulphide, and acid
       sulphate), which retain the old meanings of super-, but
       with sharper definition. Cf. {Acid}, a., {Bi-}, {Di-}, and
