They say learning is a continuous process. I agree.
The other day there was a heated argument at my workplace on whether we were going to have a meeting ‘once in a fortnight’ or ‘every other week’. The reason I thought, “why not share this?” was because I always thought a fortnight had a similar meaning to every other day rather than every other week.
I don’t know whether I’ve succeeded in confusing you too. If I have, then we better work on un-confusing you.
A fortnight – a unit of time equal to fourteen days, also a period of two weeks
Every other week – every second week, as in something happens one week, and then it doesn’t happen in another, then it does the next and so on. Also every even week, every odd week
Every other day – every second day
Basically the difference in the meeting happening in a fortnight and every other week is the same.
