orir (c.1240)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 7,416b oriri; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: 1285 orir; DEAF:  orir; DMF: ; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: 2056a oriri ]

The word is unique to this attestation, and appears to be the result of a mistranslation of the Latin orare (‘to pray’) in the source text. Latin oriri otherwise does not seem to have produced a vernacular form, either in French or in English.
