HYPER/ΥΠΕΡ Words transitioning from the Greek Alphabet to the Latin one, usually get a do-over in both spelling and pronunciation. Thankfully in most of them, you can still detect similarities in the spelling. Today's word is one of them. Υπερ started as an adverb in Ancient Greek. It meant 'beyond' or 'over'. In modern Greek it is a preposition (or a prefix) and it means 'over the top'. So when combined with a word it magnifies it. In many ways it has the same use the word 'over' has. There is an added use in English too. Since 1946 it's been used as an adjective. But only in English. Υπερ/Hyper.
