[quatrisme] (1299)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 2/ii,1440a quattuor; Gdf: 6,490b quatriesme; GdfC: 10,456c quatrieme; TL: 2,71 catrime; DEAF: ; DMF:  quatrième; TLF:  quatrième; OED:  quatrime n.; MED:  quatrime n.; DMLBS: 2619c quartus 2 ]
catrime,  quatorisme,  quatorizme;  quatriesme  

The variants quatorisme and quatorizme have occasionally been interpreted as deviant readings of quatorzisme (‘fourteenth’), for example in Gaunt1 i 139 the editor dates a document to the '14th of July' and not to the '4th'. Although such an interpretation is not out of the question, the form quator + isme/izme (i.e. lacking an s or z sound after the r of quator), seems closer to this relatively rare (compared to quart1) ordinal numeral quatrisme.
