> use in a sentence
umm, we can't find many words that are anaptyxitic?
That's because anaptyxis is relatively rare in english, athalete and realitor being the onliest examples I can think of just right off hand.

Noun: anaptyxis; adjective: anaptyctic. How about the anaptyctic u in some pronuciations of nuclear?_________________________

Anaptyctic schwas manifest themselves from time to time in Hiberno-English. Perhaps the best example is the pronunciation of "film" as the 1.5 syllable "fillum".

And there is a subset on US'ns who manage to make two or more syllables out of four letter words. e.g Kevin Kline in "A Fish Called Wanda" Certainly adds emphasis.
