OK. From Wikipedia

"A fortnight is a unit of time equal to 14 days (2 weeks). The word derives from the Old English term fēowertyne niht, meaning "fourteen nights".[1][2]
Some wages and salaries are paid on a fortnightly basis;[3] however, in North America it is far more common to use the term biweekly"

If I was paid "biweekly" I'd feel ripped off.
