I think you mean Hålla tal. Which means: make a speech?

Hi Elena,

I am not entirely sure what it is supposed to mean either. The expression in itself, hall av tal, is grammatically possible, but it sounds very abstract and is not easy to understand. Hall can mean "hallway", and tal can mean "speech", "speach" or "number" as in "the number 20", or "sum" as in "work out a sum".

Can you please give a little bit more context? If you found it in a text, can you please give us the whole sentence, or even some lines before and after this expression?

I'm not quite certain what it should translate as. The three words are all Swedish, but put together, they don't produce a grammatically coherent sentence. "Håll", as Itzak pointed out, can mean "way" or "direction", but is also the verb "hålla" ("hold") in the imperative. "Av" can be translated as "of" or "off" and "tal" can be translated as "speech" or "number" . Are you certain that it's not "hålla tal"? That would translate to "giving a speech".

Yes, is the special character a. I have used few sites to get a better understanding of this phrase, but i am still not sure of the exact meaning. One difficulty is from having "number" in about 4 forms in Swedish. Then "hall", is this seen as verb or noun here?

Hall av tal i think  I could  translated as "Aditorium"

but if the word hAll in the vowel A has as a small O up , it means : part, way, direction ...I hope than that helps you a little bit ...I am trying to learn this language, too.
