Pronounced: jinks, verb
Notes: OK, we know the usual meaning, but this word also has a meaning of which I was unaware.
The word alopecia means “baldness; specifically, the loss of hair, wool or feathers”
Oddly enough, the root word from which the word comes is the Greek word alōpēx (fox)! The word actually came into English from Latin alopecia, which itself came from the Greek word alōpekia (mange on foxes).
The word showed up in the late 1300s
