I don't like the word "Biannual" for this reason

It has an ambiguous meaning.

It could either mean twice a year (Semiannual) or once every two years (Biennial).

Agreed. However, it's not even ambiguous, it's just people not knowing their terms and approximating a new one.

In that case, biannual should mean the former meaning (twice a year).
