Word stuff: syncope



(SING-kuh-pee) 

 The shortening of a word by omission of sounds or letters from its middle. For example, did not to didn't or Worcester to Wooster. . Fainting caused by insufficient blood flow to the brain.


From Latin syncope, from Greek synkope (contraction, cutting off), from syn- (together) + koptein (to cut).
