You probably needed the "d" at the end - bifurcated. Odds are, QM will adjust it.

That's not really a good clue. Bifurcated is to separate into two branches as in a river or litigation. A forked tongue is just one with two tips.

Bifurcate is the infinitive verb form, you NEED the D at the end to make it the participle.

Semi-monthly is twice per month, which is close to biweekly, but not the same. If you get paid semi-monthly, you get 24 paychecks per year. If you get paid biweekly, you get 26 paychecks per year.

I would say "supported by both Republicans and Democrats" is the least common usage of that word, and mention of Reps and Dems makes it too USA-specific.

The word can mean "comprising both political parties" when referring to committees, or even "independent of any one political party".

"One attracted to either men or women" technically means someone who is only attracted to one sex or the other. I think you mean "One attracted to both men and women."

After a quick google search of 'do birds have feet' I found that almost all of the sources refer to the things on the end of birds' 'legs' as feet. It also referred to the appendages as toes.

Bisexual means to be attracted to 2 genders. Those genders don't necessarily have to be men and women, and the wording of the clue implies that a bisexual person is attracted to either men or women, when they would actually be attracted to both at the same time

Bisexual means exactly the opposite of being either attracted to men, or to women. It means to be attracted to both. If you are attracted to either men, or women, you are heterosexual or homosexual depending on your own sex. Quite a big mess/mix up imho. (Like saying that a guy that likes women is homosexual)
