sec- and tert- are commonly used for naming substituents. Sec- stands for secondary which means the carbon that the functional group is attached to is also attached to 2 other carbons and tert- stands for tertiary which means the carbon is attached to 3 other carbons. I think this applies mostly just to butyl because all the examples I've seen have only involved butyl but I'm not 100% sure... hope this helped though!
