It can be placed before the stem of many a word to produce verbs of a very distinctive kind! For example:
outdate, outgrow, outlay, outlive, outmatch, outnumber, outrun, outsmart, outsource, outstrip, outweight, outwit,...
Is there another preposition/adverb in the English language that when used as a prefix originates such a noticeable amount of new verbs? Is there a generic term that can be used to refer to preposition/adverbs of this persuasion?
Thanks a lot for your patience and continued support!
