Trans– is a common prefix in English. Prefixes attach to the beginning of the word.

Trans– means to cross, across, beyond.

Here are a couple of other common prefixes and their meanings:

  • Un- the prefix un means not, reverse action, release from.

Please unlike her photo.

  • Re-the prefix re means again.
