fortnights

A discussion this morning threw up the interesting titbit of info:

Apparently Americans don't use the word 'fortnight' to describe a two-week period.

We then got onto the meaning of the word 'bi-weekly', and whether it means twice a week, or every two weeks.

 

So, dear reader:

If you are American - do you know what I mean by 'fortnight', and would you use it in regular everyday use?

What do *you* understand by the term 'bi-weekly'?

 

Thoughts, comments, questions and suggestions onna postcard to the usual address...
