Category:Examples of syncope[edit]

What a weird title. We wouldn't put zugzwang in Category:Examples of German derivations, so why this? Mglovesfun (talk) 11:23, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Because this is an uncommon form of derivation that might occur in multiple languages for which we don't have a category (and probably shouldn't). I think that, for example, idolatry was derived from Latin term formed by syncope from an earlier Latin term. Similarly for barn (Old English). DCDuring TALK 16:50, 11 July 2010 (UTC)
Keep. Perhaps rename to Category:English examples of syncope or something.  — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ (U · T · C) ~ 12:22, 11 August 2010 (UTC)
Move to Category:English syncopic forms per Category:English apocopic forms and Category:English aphaeretic forms. — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ (U · T · C) ~ 13:33, 7 September 2010 (UTC)
Re: Raifʻhār Doremítzwr, I wasn't proposing to delete it. Unless that comment wasn't aimed at me. --Mglovesfun (talk) 10:04, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
