I have a huge headache. I have already taken two aspirin and wonder if some kind soul will help me clarify the distinction between the two words "secondly" and "secondarily".

I have looked up both definitions in three different dictionaries and I know both are adverbs. "Secondly" is the adverb form of "second" and "secondarily" is the adverb form of "secondary".

Are they synonyms? How would you contrast their usage?

I have been staring at this for so long now, words are blurring together and I am contemplating a career change. I hear 7-11 needs Slurpee makers...

Many thanks,

Patty B.
