There's a typesetting convention for lyrics that when there are what
look like two syllables on a note but it's really only one because one
is elided, you join the syllables with a sort of a tie underneath
them.  You can see how Encore does this on the bottom score of the
first page of this file.


Is there a way to make Lilypond do this?  

If so, can it be documented and indexed under "elision", or "Lyrics, elision"?

One of my group members believes strongly that this is the *right
thing to do*, so I might do it if it were easy, but they never did
stuff like that in the 16th century, so I might just not bother
