    Look at these two sentences.

    The words "the arc whose sine is" are abbreviated as arcsine. We further shorten arcsine to arcsin.

    I understand that I cannot ever contract arcsin because it is an abbreviated function name.

    I don't think that "sine" or either of the uses of "arcsine" are in a mathematical context, and therefore I can contract.

    Am I correct? TIA bt

    You are correct. You may use contractions for unabbreviated function names in non-math context.
