  wall interj. [WPI] 1. An indication of confusion, usually spoken with a
     quizzical tone: "Wall??" 2. A request for further explication. Compare
     octal forty. 3. [Unix, from `write all'] v. To send a message to
     everyone currently logged in, esp. with the wall(8) utility.
  
     It is said that sense 1 came from the idiom `like talking to a blank
     wall'. It was originally used in situations where, after you had
     carefully answered a question, the questioner stared at you blankly,
     clearly having understood nothing that was explained. You would then
     throw out a "Hello, wall?" to elicit some sort of response from the
     questioner. Later, confused questioners began voicing "Wall?"
     themselves.

Din dicționarul Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Wall
     Cities were surrounded by walls, as distinguished from "unwalled
     villages" (Ezek. 38:11; Lev. 25:29-34). They were made thick and
     strong (Num. 13:28; Deut. 3:5). Among the Jews walls were built
     of stone, some of those in the temple being of great size (1
     Kings 6:7; 7:9-12; 20:30; Mark 13:1, 2). The term is used
     metaphorically of security and safety (Isa. 26:1; 60:18; Rev.
     21:12-20). (See FENCE.)
     

Din dicționarul Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  WALL. A building or erection so well known as to need no definition. In 
  general a man may build a wall on any part of his estate, to any height he 
  may deem proper, and in such form as may best accommodate him; but he must 
  take care not to erect a wall contrary to the local regulations, nor in such 
  a manner as to be injurious to his neighbors. See Dig. 50, 16, 157. Vide 
  Party Wall. 
  
  

Din dicționarul THE DEVIL'S DICTIONARY ((C)1911 Released April 15 1993) :

  WALL :STREET:, n.  A symbol for sin for every devil to rebuke.  That
  Wall Street is a den of thieves is a belief that serves every
  unsuccessful thief in place of a hope in Heaven.  Even the great and
  good Andrew Carnegie has made his profession of faith in the matter.
  
      Carnegie the dauntless has uttered his call
      To battle:  "The brokers are parasites all!"
      Carnegie, Carnegie, you'll never prevail;
      Keep the wind of your slogan to belly your sail,
      Go back to your isle of perpetual brume,
      Silence your pibroch, doff tartan and plume:
      Ben Lomond is calling his son from the fray --
      Fly, fly from the region of Wall Street away!
      While still you're possessed of a single baubee
      (I wish it were pledged to endowment of me)
      'Twere wise to retreat from the wars of finance
      Lest its value decline ere your credit advance.
      For a man 'twixt a king of finance and the sea,
      Carnegie, Carnegie, your tongue is too free!
                                                           Anonymus Bink
