    It is not clear what you are asking.

    Here is a list of prefixes: English Vocabulary: Prefixes (EnglishClub.com)

    bi- = twice or every two something: It is a bi-monthly meeting [the meeting is held twice in the month 0R is held every two-months]

    bi >> having two of something [biped = two legged]
