gylaí (adjective): fat, fattened (especially of animals).

“she owns many fat sheep”

The word gylon, derived from the same root as gylaí, means ‘fat or lazy person’, and is especially offensive given its implications that the referent is closer to an animal (the adjectives chraseí and dumeí are used more often to refer to people).
