<<• They pay periodic dividends (usually semi-annually) until they mature or are “called.”>>

You may wish to note that there are some exceptions to this, without detailing them right away (savings bonds, zeroes, convertibles).

There are also "exchange traded bonds", many of which pay monthly interest (one of the reasons they do this is so trading is easier - no need to pay accrued interest upon a trade, any accrued interest is assumed to be accounted for in the bonds price).

I think the word "periodic" and "usually" is sufficient for this case, but not sufficient for bonds that have no coupon at all.
