Presumably the same folks who add the "uh" in the middle of Kathleen (a 2 syllable word as far as I can tell) are the same folks who say athuhlete (and drive me crazy). Ornery is different - losing a syllable, not adding a superfluous one. BTW, I say it with both the first r and 3 syllables and grew up in NY. Of course, it's not really a word I use a whole hell of a lot in any case. Rima
