Dilogy (Secondary)

A work, which is composed of two parts, is designated as a dilogy, also a second-hand, work. Such a dilogy can be a literary, cinematic, but also a musical work. However, the term is mostly used in connection with literary products (eg novels) as well as with regard to films. Often, the individual works of the second-hand work independently, which means that the action of the individual work is frequently completed in itself (see also: multipart).

The term “dilogy” derives from the ancient Greek word “dilogía”. This is made up of the prefix di for two or double and the noun lógos by word. Literally, the diction is thus a double or two-word, and therefore, in the transmitted sense, a content consisting of two parts. As a matter of fact, the whole thing is usually referred to as a second person
