A schwa (represented by an upside-down lower-case "e" in dictionaries) inserted between two consonants to aid pronunciation. Czech and Armenian frequently use epenthetic schwas. "Epenthetic" means "inserted" and is pronounced "eh-pen-THET-ik".
The word "prst", which is Czech for "finger", has an epenthetic schwa between the "p" and the "r" and is pronounced "purrst".
