Monday word: bimestrial

bimestrial (bī-mĕs′trē-əl), adj.
1. Occurring every two months; bimonthly.
2. Lasting two months.

Etymology:  Latin, bi + mensis, month.

I ran across this word while looking into last week's word:  there is a publication called The Funambulist that is "a bimestrial printed and digital magazine complemented with a blog and a podcast".  September 2015 appears to be its very first issue.
