More Second Term Extra Credit

Syncope (SINK-uh-pee) in grammatical terms, is the shortening of a word by omission of a sound, letter, or syllable from the middle of the word; for example, "ne'er" for never, or "ev'ry" for every. So it's like a contraction for the middle (as opposed to the ends) of the word.   -- Come and tell me about this word (including the word, a definition, and an example) for 3 points of extra credit.
