Is there any single word which can substitute "weekly twice" or "twice in a week"?


The word is twice-weekly with semi-weekly as a synonym and semiweekly as an alternative spelling.

    Biweekly generally means "every two weeks", but sometimes may be used as "twice a week". – GEdgar Oct 16 '11 at 17:11

    Yes, biweekly and bimonthly are perpetual sources of confusion. – ShreevatsaR Oct 16 '11 at 17:15
  • That's why we have fortnightly. We probably don't need a single unambiguous word for "twice a week", because there aren't that many things that happen that often. – FumbleFingers Oct 16 '11 at 21:14
  • Twice a week is hard because a week has an odd number of days :-) – rjmunro May 16 '12 at 12:36
