@imymee No, it isn't a very common word that people use daily! It is a bit hard to find a singular word that can replace it, though. If you wanted to use something like this in an everyday conversation, you could use something like "surpass", but honestly you would be fine to use it in a normal conversation but just not too often!
@imymee You're welcome! I believe your sentences are fine the way they are, but if you wanted to use it in a different context or if the meaning of "transcend" is something you want to use often, it might be better to use other words or phrases 😊
