Bimonthly

Here’s an economical word 😉 It means two mutually-exclusive thing at once:

1. twice a month

2. once every two months

In fact, the meaning of “bimonthly” (and similar words like “biweekly” and “biyearly”) is ambiguous. The best way to be unambiguous is to use alternative expressions such as “twice a month” or “every two months”.
