i’m sure there’s a word for it

Posted on June 20, 2006. Filed under: Uncategorized |

I was just updating something quarterly and wanted to do something else 3 times a year — is there a term for that? We couldn't figure one out…

Tricely? No
Thricely? No
Trimester? No
Tertiarily? No
Triceritops? No

What about twice a year?

Halfly? No
Twicely? No
Bi-annually? No, that would be every other year…

Again, I'm sure these words must exist, but we couldn't think of what they were. Any help out there?

Try “tri-annually”… not to be confused with with “triennially”, which is once every three years.

If at first you don’t succeed, try tri try again.

Perfect — thanks! It just didn’t sound right, but I appreciate the knowledge. 🙂

Wait a minute — isn’t bi-weekly every other week, not every half of the week? So how is tri-annually three times a year?
