I realize everyone uses 'four times', 'five times'... in case of denoting something repeating more than three times. Even 'thrice' is currently gradually going extinct.

But did English ever possess single-word expression that denoted 'four times', or any for higher number, or was 'thrice' always the highest single-word adverb to denote a number of times something repeats?

  • The suffix is -fold: three-fold, eighteen-fold, manifold. In German it's -fach: einfach, dreifach. – John Lawler Jun 6 '14 at 16:30
