That means to hit, for example. supersede to take the place of Fact correct. It also means 'better' then, 'more' or 'above'. For example Superman; Super = over/above and to the man. Cities ssometimes they have names such as Weston Super Mare in the uk means Weston over the Sea. Sometimes I laugh the way in which the word "super" is sometimes used; I saw a poster that said "Super low prices" This could be interpreted as "low price", in other words, it is not cheap. A friend once told me that he had to '..dig a super deep hole for the foundation work. " I asked him if he was digging shallow holes. The next time you're out and about, take a look at how the word is used in advertising, general conversation, etc.; is good for a laugh. This also applies to many other words - especially 'extended' words such as 'conception' . Someone has taken a perfectly good word 'concept' changed back to himself, so that it is more. I. E. "What is your concept of good art?" "What is your conceptualization of the good art?"
