Bye-Bye Biweekly

Play episode
Leah, a college student in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, asks: Does biweekly mean “twice a week” or “once every two weeks”? In British English, fortnightly specifies “once every two weeks.” But biweekly is what’s known as a skunked term, because it’s simply too confusing. A better choice is to opt to specify twice a week or twice a month, depending on what you mean. Ditto for bimonthly–just use more words to clarify exactly what you intend to say. This is part of a complete episode.
