How much do they actually intend to pay me?

Salary confusion: They offered me (and I accepted) a salary of 50k. My position starts next week and is guaranteed through May. I don't remember them saying "50k/year," just "50k." So how much will I take home bi-weekly? (pre-tax and benefits, for simplicity).
I assumed that I could expect to be paid 50k total between now and May. Now I am second-guessing. Do they intend to pay me an annual rate of 50k, in installments that assume I work year-round? All of my information is from my soon-to-be supervisor. I meet with HR on Monday to do all of the paperwork. Should I ask HR for clarification? Or my supervisor? What is the appropriate way to ask for clarification? This is a position in higher education in the USA. Added complication: It's possible I will be hired year-round in May. What happens then?
