Actually, it's not just pronunciation with aluminium, it's a different spelling too.

There is no extra I. Just just forgot to put it in there. Seriously, both words have been used for the material over the years. Science has pretty much standardized on our version, even in the US. It's only that they've not told the population about it yet ;)

Well shit. I actually thought there was an extra I. I believed it it because of how you pronounce it. It has to be the most oddball way of saying it at least to my American ears.
