Duplex is a telecommunications term for communication channels that go in both ways at once. "Half-duplex" indicates that when you type a character on your keyboard, the character is displayed on your screen by your computer or terminal as it is sent to the remote computer or terminal. "Full-duplex" means that the character is sent to the remote computer, which then sends it back to display it on your screen. If your modem software is set for half-duplex, but the remote computer thinks you are full-duplex, each character you type will appear as two characters on your screen.
