Pilgarlik or pilgarlic is a 16th century word used to describe someone without hair – someone who is bald. It translates to peeled garlic, which is what people possibly saw a similar appearance between peeled garlic and baldness. This also can be used in regards to someone with mild/ pretended contempt or pity. 😛
Examples of this word in a sentence:
