A Riley Riddle

I have a guess, but there's one clue that I can't figure out exactly.

Are you...

Pronunciation

My prefix's full of expertise

A pro(fessional) is someone who is an expert at something.

My infix's in the diocese

A nun might live in a diocese.

My suffix's citation missing link

This one I'm not sure of, but the suffix "ciation" is citation missing the "t". If we associate the missing "t" with "missing link" then this works.

My whole's making a sink sync

Sink can be made into sync by pronouncing it (i.e. saying it aloud).

This is a Rilerdl

Another hint, "This is a Riley riddle" if you just pronounce it.

    $\begingroup$ I thought the artistic license you took on the clues were nicely creative. It's always better when it rhymes :) Thanks for the great puzzle! $\endgroup$ – Tonkleton Jan 21 at 19:51

    $\begingroup$ This is a way to link, say, the two drains of a double sink to a single drainpipe. $\endgroup$ – Rubio Jan 21 at 22:27
