Oh, and why is that problematic for singers? (Hums some Bach (I think it's Bach): A-a-a-a-a-a-alles was O-o-o-o-o-o-odem hat… Lots of small pauses between the vowels there.)
It's problematic when people start putting them in.

Take the Latin word Kyrie. Three syllables, and singers just love to sling a "y" sound in between the second and third ones (so that it sounds as "kee-ree-Yae" rather than "kee-ree-ae").
