It is a noun from one thousand nine hundred eighty to a settlement of Jerry built dwellings on the outskirts of a city. As in France or North America North Africa Jerry built by the way is J. E. R. R. Y. I reminded me when you sort of throw something together. What do you call it like Jerry rigged or something? I don't know if those are related So I'm guessing these are maybe not very well built dwellings. That's just what I'm gathering from this This is French from baton.

Latin Byford catis which is from the Verb Byford Carre which is from the Latin word by focus which means two pronged which is from the by prefix plus furka which means fork so the the first example. I can think of would be a snake's tongue or maybe other in other lizards or reptiles have those similar tongues where the end is forked. There have been some humans who have decided to bifurcated their tongue because the tongue is made up of two muscles And so basically they have a doctor cut cut the muscles apart from each other and so they can move the two muscles sort of independently like a lake reptiles tongue.

Maybe they could use some help. Maybe maybe that I don't know it's hard. I I struggle when I'm talking about something. That is either political or whatever because I am not a word wizard. I'm not I don't have the best vocabulary. I have good intentions but I'm not always sure what exactly to say So I want to bring some attention to groups of people who might be living in that is it.
