quarte1 (s.xiii)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 2/ii,1423a quartus; Gdf: 1,789c carte 1 /6,484a quarte 1; GdfC: ; TL: 2,56 carte 1; DEAF: ; DMF:  quarte; TLF:  quarte; OED:  quart n.1; MED:  quart(e n.; DMLBS: 2619a quartus 2 ]
 

Although word gender often cannot be reliably determined in Anglo-Norman, there seems to have been a feminine substantive, derived from Latin quarta, which was separate from the substantival use of quartus (see quart1), and which was also found in Continental French.
