Hi, English language is full of synonyms but I can not find any synonym for cyber. Do you know any. I looked at Oxford Synonym Dictionary but it does not include a synonym for it.

Best Regards.

The prefix cyber was first derived for the field of cybernetics nearly two hundred years ago. I'm unaware of when or why it was adopted in this context.

This history is interesting. I had assumed it was a very recent geek-pop word that simply meant "robotic".
