Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from English Vauxhall (former site of a pleasure garden). The ending was influenced by зал (zal, hall). The spelling фоксал (foksal) attested in 1777 is from French facs-hall, from the same English source. The transportation sense derives from an epithet for the Pavlovsk train station building, which at one time served as both a passenger lounge and a place of entertainment.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): [vɐɡˈzal]
  • (file)
