super-, supra-, sur-

(Latin: above, over; more than, excessive)

Sur- is a variation of super- developed through the French and shouldn't be confused with another assimilated sur- form that comes from sub- and means: "under, below, beneath".

In some words, super- is amplified to mean: "on top of; higher in rank or position than; superior to; greater in quality, amount, or degree than others of its kind".

Ultima semper expectanda dies homini, dicique beatus ante obitum nemo supremaque funera debet.
Man's last day must ever be awaited, and none to be counted happy until his death, until his last funeral rites are paid.
unsurrendered (adjective) (not comparative)
