English

Etymology

Borrowed from Latin tr?ns ("across, on the far side, beyond").

Prefix

trans-

  1. Across, through, over, beyond, to or on the other side of, outside of.
  2. (chemistry) A compound in which two atoms or groups are situated on opposite sides of some plane of symmetry passing through the compound. (Also used without the hyphen as an adjective; see trans.)
  3. Transgender or transsexual, or pertaining to those who are transgender or transsexual.

Usage notes

  • In the first sense, "on the other side of", this prefix is usually attached directly to the word it modifies, or sometimes separated from it by a hyphen: transrhenane, trans-Neptunian.
  • In the sex- or gender-related sense, this prefix is attached directly to certain words, most notably transgender and transsexual. In other cases, the related standalone adjective trans is used: hence one speaks of issues facing the trans community and trans rights (not *transrights), etc. In particular, it can sometimes be considered offensive to write transman or trans-man, the preferred spelling being trans man (trans man). Compare cis- and cis.
