    Cool Please - what word describes "Three Times Per Year"

    I have looked everywhere and found some really strange words. Did you know "Veadar" means: included seven times in every 19 years. We have a word for that???

    Three times per year does not seem such an odd concept, but I cannot find the word to describe this. Such as annual is once per year, biennial is once every other year, etc.

    Please post if you know the word that describes "three times per year".

    Biannual = every two years
    Triannual = every three years

    Biennial = twice a year
    Triennial = three times a year (or ´thrice´a year)
