This request keeps poping up about once a year or so. If I recall
correctly, the earlier requests were for a curved symbol, something
like a tie pointing downwards, whereas your example shows a straight
line. I think you can find some workarounds in the mailing list archives
using inline LaTeX code. For an ordinary underscore as in the example
you show, you could simply use "tre\\_es".
If there happens to be any symbol in the LilyPond Feta font that could
be useful (see then it's easy to access in the lyrics by just inserting a \markup{...}

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
