Prefix Over

If you add the prefix over to a verb, you intensify the verb.

Overwork means to work too much.

I feel overworked means I feel exhausted.

Overdo means to do too much of something.

I overdid it when I was working out. Now my muscles are sore. That means that I exercised too much or too strenuously.

I overslept means I slept too long.

When you oversleep you may be late for work.

See you soon!
