Special type of word name

Do the kanji 受付 and 待合 have a special name because of the way that they are read? So far these are the only two words that I have come across that follow the pattern of conjugating the verb from, keeping the stem, and smashing the two together.

It’s just kun’yomi, but with okurigana omitted so it takes up less room. Typically used on signgage. I don’t know if there’s a special name for it, but you’re gonna see a lot of examples around the place. For example:



SK01-0024R
