Hebrew spelling

Hello. I would like to know which is the correct spelling for the
word "akhshav" (now), I have seen two versions of this word, one
spelt "ayin, kaf, shin vav" and "ayin kaf shin YOD vav", I would like to
know why this extra yod is added in unvocalised spelling, because I have
certainly never heard it pronounced akhshayv. Also, is there any specific
rule as to when I should spell unovcalised words with an extra yod?
