# 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 $\frac{ii}{V}$ - $\frac{V}{V}$ - $\frac{V}{(I)}$.
