The modern world is filled with ambiguous terminology that can have a significant effect on everyone's daily lives. Something as simple as an apostrophe can significantly change the meaning of a sentence and can even mean the difference between life and death. For example:

Let's eat, Grandma! v. Let's eat Grandma!

My goal is to make the world a little less ambiguous by solidifying the meaning of "bi-weekly." Currently, the word "bi-weekly" can mean twice a week or every two weeks. This ambiguity can result in a scheduling nightmare for any party involved. I have personally been affected by this dual-meaning. I was told that my club meetings were "bi-weekly," so I went to the meetings every two weeks and missed some important discussion topics.

Thus, I propose that the definition of "bi-weekly" will only be "twice per week." To fill the void, "fortnightly" or "every 2 weeks" can be used.

The United Kingdom, New Zealand, Ireland, and Australia have officially made the change, and I believe the United States of America should follow suit.

Please sign the petition with me and put an end to crippling English ambiguity!
