Random Sequence: othergates

"If a bloody coxcomb be a hurt, you have hurt me. I think you set nothing by a bloody coxcomb. Here comes Sir Toby halting. You shall hear more. But if he had not been in drink, he would have tickled you othergates than he did."
--Twelfth Night, Act 5, Scene 1, William Shakespeare

othergates (adverb) = otherwise or in another manner

I feel strangely drawn to this obsolete word.
