outrément (s.xiiiin)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 14,10b ultra; Gdf: 5,607b outreement 1; GdfC: ; TL: 6,1443 outrer (outreement); DEAF:  outre (outreement); DMF:  outrément; TLF: ; OED:  oultrely adv.; MED:  outreli adv.; DMLBS: ]
oltreement;  otreement,  otrément;  oultreement,  oultrément;  ousterment,  oustrément;  outerment,  outreement,  outreiement,  outriement;  ultrément;  utreement,  utreiment,  utrément,  utreyment,  ottoirment,  outrelment  Ed II vii 197 uutrément  39  

Rather than the adverbial form of outre (primarily an adverb, although it can be used adjectivally) this word should be interpreted as deriving from the adjectival use of the past participle of outrer1, i.e. outré. As a result, the second syllable of outrément is accented (see also DMF). Spellings like oltreement or outreement support this interpretation. However, forms such as outerment and ousterment, if genuine (i.e. not an editorial misreading of a manuscript abbreviation), favour the interpretation of the word as a tautological construction outre /outer + -ment. The OED and MED provide examples of similar constructions in English. Both forms (with or without an accent) are found in modern editions.
