In the link reaction pyruvate loses carbon dioxide and hydrogen. What terms are used to describe these two processes?

Is it Glycolysis?

the question says link, but I'm not sure
Maybe it is using a terminology to avoid giving the answer?

What I think you mean:

Removal of CO2 - decarboxylation
Losing of hydrogen - NAD is reduced and oxidised the aliphatic chain to form acetate.

End of the link reaction is the acetate binding to CoA to form Acetyl CoA

Is this what you are looking for?

Well referencing the original question, the above answer would be my answer. Those 2 processes are decarboxylation and oxidisation
