What does "sovereign" have to do with "super"?
Super is the increase of sovereign. If I am super sovereign, I am better than just sovereign.
This logic is certainly not entirely wrong, but this is not the connection we are looking for.
The people are the sovereign, they say. But I don’t know whether that is super.
This connection is also not what we are looking for.
That has to do with the origin of the term – “sovereign” has developed from the Latin word “super” (above) into the French word “souverain” (supreme, highest, excellent). Thus “super” is basically the linguistic precursor of “sovereign”.
Bingo – the origin of the term establishes the connection. Correct!
