French has a lot of these extra syllables.

For example, you often hear TV announcers pronounce Parc des Princes (a big stadium in Paris) as par-kuh-des-princes.

Or the weather forecaster will tell you the situation "dans l'est-uh-de la France."

In French, no more than three consonants can cluster up before a vowel gets inserted.
