    Bitte um kurze Bestätigung, dass es das Substantiv "biweek" in diesem Sinn nicht gibt ;-)

    Siehe auch: bi-weekly - alle 2 Wochen und 2 mal in der Woche - #11

    biweekly ja, biweek aber nicht.

    Warte aber noch andere Antworten ab, falls ich danebenliege...

    Klar, "bi-weekLY" weiß ich, aber mir geht's um "every bi-week" - aus einem Vertrag, dessen Englisch wohl Spanier verbrochen haben ;-)

    Wenn Du meinst, dass es so nicht in einem ordentlichen WB steht, stimmt ... zumindest hab' ich da nichts gefunden ...

    ... was die Verwendung angeht, da findet sich in Zeiten von Internet doch eh so ziemlich alles, auch das ...

    This is obviously a late addition, but would it be easier if we broke the word differently? Weekly means once per week. Wouldn’t biweekly mean once per biweek or once per two-week? That would make semiweekly once per semiweek or once per half-week. We don’t use the terms biweek (fortnight) or semiweek, but looking at the construction, this has the merit of internal consistency. As for proscriptive or descriptive, I agree that the purpose of language is clear communication. To that end, we need some degree of standardization. The descriptive side of things will always be necessary since our world changes, our needs change and our language will have to change with them. ...

    FWIW, I've never seen such a word used in the sense of a two-week period (BE fortnight), nor do I think its supposedly intended meaning is clear from context. So yes, I think you're right to advise against it.

    In the other sense, a week celebrating people who are bisexual, I would expect that to be written as two words, 'bi week.' So I don't think '*biweek' would actually be correct for that either. (The occasional odd appearance might owe something to the #HashtagEffect, where the spaces have to be taken out.)

    Mir ist nicht klar, was #3 belegen soll, wenn in dem Zitat selbst steht "We don’t use the terms biweek". Und auch das zweite Zitat finde ich völlig unklar - " (i.e., first two weeks, second two weeks, etc.) ... "
