supererogatory \ˌsü-pər-i-ˈrä-gə-ˌtor-ē\ adjective: observed or performed to an extent not enjoined or required, 2. superfluous

Etymology: Latin superērogō pay out over and above, from super above + ērogō pay out, expend (from ex out of, from + rogō ask, request)

When this word is pronounced it sounds like stuttering.
