Etymology[edit]

Latin bis twice + membrum member.

Adjective[edit]

bimembral (not comparable)

  1. (grammar) Having two members.
    • 1858, Josiah Willard Gibbs, A Latin Analyst on Modern Philological Principles
      This will be more easily apprehended, if we consider that all combination is bimembral; i. e. consists of two members, one of which is subordinated to the other by the intonation, and thus becomes compacted with it []
