I have no idea what you mean, those are not bridge terms in English, but in general terms E's 2 does not in any way disrupt your 1-2 auction, so 2 means whatever it would have meant without the overcall.

2 to most people would be a game try of some description, the type depending on your agreement but it's basically a "bid 4 with a good 2 bid using your holding in spades as a guide as to what's a good one".

Inall cases the above auction shows extras from opener.

If the bidding is 1Club - (1Spade overcall) - 2Diamonds from partner, if you bid 2❤️ it is not even a 2-suiter you could even have
