Pronunciation GB: ˌpærəˈɡəʊdʒi , GA: ˌperəˈɡɒʊdʒi

The addition of a sound or syllable to the end of a word. This is a common occurrence in the nativisation of loan words. For example, Japanese, which does not allow word-final obstruents, adds a vowel to the end of a word which has a final obstruent in the donor language. Thus, English bike is borrowed as バイク baikɯ (“motorbike”)
