    Türkische aussprache

    bîônd dhi peyl


    /bəˈônd ᴛʜē ˈpāl/ /bɪˈɔːnd ðiː ˈpeɪl/


    [ bE-'änd ] (adverb.) before 12th century. From pale, a jurisdiction under a given authority; often held by one nation in another country, hence suggesting that anything outside their control was uncivilised. It was in use by the mid-17th century. The phrase may be a reference to the general sense of boundary, but is often understood to refer to the English Pale in Ireland. In the nominally English territory of Ireland, only the pale fell genuinely under the authority of English law, hence the terms within the Pale and beyond the pale.
