bi-1


,
a combining form meaning “twice,” “two” bicarbonate.
[< Latin; compare twi-]
usage: Most words referring to periods of time and prefixed by bi- are potentially ambiguous. Since bi- can be taken to mean either “twice each” or “every two,” a word like biweekly can be understood as “twice each week” or “every two weeks.” Confusion is often avoided by using the prefix semi- meaning “twice each” (semiweekly; semimonthly; semiannual) or by using the appropriate phrases: twice a week; twice each month; every two months; every two years.

bi-2

,
var. of bio-, esp. before a vowel: biopsy.
