hale (s.xii)


[ FEW: 16,129a *halla; Gdf: 4,404c hale 1; GdfC: 9,7444a halle; TL: 4,853 hale; DEAF: H94 hale; DMF:  halle; TLF:  halle; OED:  hall n.1; MED:  hal(le; DMLBS: 1132b halla ]
hall,  halle,  hali  i 21  

In its earliest attestation the term appears as a gloss to the otherwise unattested Latin word auliloquium (not included in DMLBS). The editor of TLL suggests the interpretation of 'hall'. Without further context in a trilinggual glossary the word may also be considered to be English.
