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?
Ceci n'est pas un seing.
...I don't mean to be mis-chiev-e-ous :-)
Fine example rat cheer!
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".
Right heyer in Marion I can find lots of examples. Y'all know that when you are exiting your car you put it in payark. I cayunt begin to cayount the words I heyer lahk thayut.
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.
And the winner is Syd-e-ney
