Abstract: The aim of this paper is to shed more light on the semantic network of the prefix super- and to prove that what lends systematicity to the semantic structure of prefixes is that they are underlyingly not arbitrary but motivated. Cognitive linguistics offers many approaches helpful in explaining this phenomenon. Some of the mechanisms used for this paper are conceptual metaphor and metonymy.
