*Afforce* was new to me, not surprising, as the dictionary says it is rarely used.
It made me wonder if there was an antonym. It turns out that *attrit* is a verb which describes reducing membership of a group.
That is probably more familiar as the noun *attrition*.
It was afforce which had the "rare" label. Sorry if I misspoke.
Attrition is very common here. Many jobs are eliminated "by attrition" as people choose to leave on their own or to retire.
I had not encountered "attrit" as a verb, though. I was not too surprised that it existed. That's as far as I went in my search this morning, though.
