This may be a repeat post as I don't see my first one on the list yet, if so I will delete this one if possible.

Is there more to this progression? What is "four times, five times, six, seven, eight times", and how far does this go?

If you are asking how far one can extend the sequence "Once, twice, three times, four times (etc)..." the answer is (obviously) that one can extend it as far as desired. if that is not your question, please state it again, more clearly.

Seizan is asking if there are words like "once," "twice," and "thrice" (adverbial genitives of "one," "two," and "three," respectively, that come from Middle English) that mean "four times," "five times," etc.

There aren't, Seizan.
