Most frequent cause for this is low transmission fluid; check it. If fluid is OK, it might be loss of fluid pressure due to wear or an internal defect. You also have Delayed Engagement. It is usually caused by transmission fluid not properly maintained, or it happens in older high mileage cars. Check the fluid to see if it's low or dirty. If so, correcting this might improve the problem, but the transmission likely already has problems with wear and leaks.
