The 16 words below may be partitioned into 4 groups of 4 connected words.
Additionally, each of the four groups can be represented by a single group-word.
Finally, the four group-words are connected by a single four-letter word.

BANANA BRITISH CHASE CUT
FORCEPS FRONTIER HUNTER KNIFE
MOON MUGGER NOSE PLANE
ROCK ROLL TEARS TIGER

Can you identify the four groups and the associated group-words?
What is the four letter word that links the group-words together?

This Connecting Wall can be resolved thus:

Group 1: BREAD
BANANA Bread, Bread KNIFE, Bread ROLL, TIGER Bread

Group 2: CROCODILE
Crocodile HUNTER, MUGGER Crocodile, Crocodile ROCK, Crocodile TEARS

Group 3: PAPER
Paper CHASE, Paper CUT, Paper MOON, Paper PLANE

Group 4: BULLDOG
BRITISH Bulldog, Bulldog FORCEPS, FRONTIER Bulldog, Bulldog NOSE

The overall connection between these 4 categories is:

CLIP - BREAD Clip, CROCODILE Clip, PAPER Clip, BULLDOG Clip.

And this fits with the title since:

'Clip' is also a synonym for 'shorten'!
