    Angry Super Vs. Superb

    Hi.

    When I heard Something Super or Superb, always I'm confusing. Is there any difference between them? Can they exchange in many case? I mean, Can I say Superb Man?

    In advance, Thanks for your answer.

    Bye

    Default Re: Super Vs. Superb

    'Superb' refers to excellence (the best) wheras 'super' refers to something above normal, like size or effort, but not necessarily something excellent.

    So super man is not by definition a superb man...
    Does this make sense?

    As an adjective, "super" can have the same meaning as "superb" -- excellent.

    Super is only used informally; superb can be formal or informal.
