Adding unnecessary syllables to commonly used words.
You ever get really bothered when people add syllables to words to make them sound silly?

I just heard a grown adult use the word "edumacated" instead of "educated" in a professional meeting. Not sure what to think about this fella now.

Don't take the employee meeting at Popeye's so seriously.

“Spear-a-mint”

As opposed to “spear-mint.”

Common in south Louisiana.

I stolted this off the web-

“If it's inside the word, it's called Epenthesis and the vowel inserted is an epenthetic vowel. The self-demonstrating mnemonic is Epenethesis.”

I'm more bothered by people who say pecifically instead of specifically.

I think it shows an informal relaxing demeanor and a kind of bonding when injected into a professional setting. During stressful work projects, consultants and employees spend alot of time in meetings, conference calls, etc. These things help keep balance and perspective between stress/work and outside/personal world.

TLDR It's a good thing if it's not overused. Stop being a ruhhhtard.
