I'm currently reading Entrepreneur Magazine, and there is a story profiling a 13-year-old who created a series of stickers to embellish Lego blocks. The subtitle of the story reads
A pint-size 'trep solves a sticky toy dilemma
This doesn't seem right to me. Since 'trep is a contraction of entrepreneur, and the word is losing en- from the left side and -reneur from the right. Wouldn't the correct subtitle read
A pint-size 'trep' solves a sticky toy dilemma
Yes, it looks awful, but wouldn't it be technically correct?
