I've seen and used other meanings such as "place of residence", "place of military residence", "Relations", "Type of death sentence"

Other Derivations:

Headquarters

Research I'd Like To See:

I'd really like to know what ties the latin root for the number four to a place people sleep or meet? I can figure out the "relations" tie to "place of residence" as in "She is my quarter" because the phrase is just pointing out that the person is providing shelter for the another. But why oh why does 4 = home?
