[Middle English halle, large residence, from Old English heall.]

Word History: The halls of academe and city hall remind us that what we commonly mean by the word hall,"a passageway, an entrance room," represents a shrunken version of what hall once commonly designated. Going back to the Indo-European root kel-1,"to cover," the Old English word heall, ancestor of our hall, referred to "a large place covered by a roof, whether a royal residence, an official building, or a large private residence, or a large room in a residence where the public life of the household is carried on." These senses and related ones are still in use, as is attested by town hall and halls of academe. Our common use of the term hall for a vestibule or a corridor harks back to medieval times when the hall was the main public room of a residence and people lived much less privately than now. As private rooms in houses took on the importance they have today, the hall lost its function. Hall also had come to mean any large room, and the vestibule was at one time one of the main sitting rooms in a house, but this sort of room has largely disappeared also, and hall has become the designation for the small vestibule of today as well as for an entrance passage or any passageway.
