BIOLOGICALLY SECONDARY ABILITY

n. a specialized form of ability which develops from a primary one. Since it involves mastery of the skill, it is usually developed through reinforcement and repetition. For instance, from the primary ability to read or speak a language, one can develop a skill in speed reading or translating.

BIOLOGICALLY SECONDARY ABILITY: "A biologically secondary ability is a more specialized form of ability which requires the mastery of a higher skill."
