Secondary supertonic chord

In music theory, the secondary supertonic chord or secondary second, is a secondary chord, but rather than being on the dominant it is on the supertonic scale degree and rather than tonicizing a degree other than the tonic, as does a secondary dominant, it creates a temporary dominant.[1] Thus the progression \frac{ii}{V} - \frac{V}{V} - \frac{V}{(I)}.

Examples include ii7/III (Fmin.7, in C major).[2]
