#' @description Adds an IntervalTier to a TextGrid.  
#' @param textgrid The TextGrid object to modify.
#' @param name The name of the IntervalTier to be inserted.
#' @param xmin The earliest time point for the intervals contained in the IntervalTier.
#' @param xmax The latest time point for the intervals contained in the IntervalTier.
#' @param intervalmins A vector of beginning values for the Intervals in the IntervalTier.
#' @param intervalmaxs A vector of end values for the Intervals in the IntervalTier.
#' @param intervaltexts  A vector of text annotations for the Intervals in the IntervalTier.
#' @return The TextGrid with the new IntervalTier added.
