The article has a comparative ("more triannual") and superlative ("most triannual") but I cannot work out what those mean. If something happens three times a year how can something else do that but more so? 17:27, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

When using triannual, what do call the first, second and third part of the tri?Would it be first trimester? Similar to first quarter in context with four times a year.

No, trimester means "three months". How about just "third" or something? I don't have anything better. Mglovesfun (talk) 13:47, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

However an easy way to avoid confusion is to think, 'which comes first in the alphabet, triannual or triennial'? OK, which comes first, something that happens three times a year, or something that happens once every three years?
