Moiety (pronounced MOY-i-tee) means one of two (approximately) equal parts though it is also loosely used to mean any share or portion. The term seems to crop up most when referring to a portion of someone's treasure or the objects in their will.
In anthropology it means one of two units into which a tribe or community is divided on the basis of unilineal descent.
