addition of extra sounds

 Some people add extra sounds in the middle of a word.
  Examples: nuclear is pronounced "nukular", athlete is pronounced "athalete."
  Words can legitimately change by such additions as a dialect feature. But beware of this.
  Permitted extras - the d in thunder and the b in nimble.
  The opposite of this is contraction, which is the omission of a sound or syllable inside a word.
  (The technical term for the addition of extra sounds is epenthesis.)
