Just to clarify.
Those are the terms that I prefer to use as well, but technically bi-monthly can mean every other month OR twice per month. The term is ambiguous.

Semi-monthly, on the other hand, is definitively twice per month.

You don't need an "expert" to figure any of this out. This kind of analysis requires grade school level math.

If you believe that, you need to brush up on your reading comprehension skills.

I think it's the other way around. I said biweekly is every two weeks and bimonthly is twice per month. You then go on to say the exact same thing...

As I said, the terms are ambiguous. On top of that, the way you are using them is wrong and adds even more unnecessary confusion.

If you are going to use bi-weekly to refer to once every two weeks, why wouldn't you use bi-monthly to describe once every two months? Using it to describe something that takes place twice per month makes absolutely no sense in that context. When you use bi-weekly to refer to every two weeks you would use semi-monthly to refer to twice per month.

You are using the terms inconsistently. End of story.

Lol whatever you say man. Re-read my post and you will see I mention both bi-monthly and semi-monthly can be used interchangeably. I feel like I'm in the twilight zone here.
