   A wall which divides a territory into parts (such as the
   Berlin Wall) is also called a {tlhoy'}, even though neither
   side of it is the interior of a structure. On occasion, for
   clarity, such a wall is termed a {chevwI' tlhoy'} "separator
   wall") or a {pIn tlhoy'}, literally "boss wall," presumably
   dating back to a time when each subterritory had a specific
   person in charge.
