    Unhappy Re: American Pronunciation

    Yes, but I don't understand much about the culture... I mean the problem is that Amereca needs to try harder to show it's culture. Just that

    Yes, you could have a point there. I don't know how things look to you. Popular entertainment and other media certainly have given false impressions and have been misleading. I can't say to what extent this continues. I don't watch television, and I'm very selective about which movies I watch.

    Still, I think one could be more careful and thoughtful of what one says.

    I don't feel optimistic that will happen in this case.

    I understand what you're saying though.

    Re: American Pronunciation

    I would say that 95% of the time I pronounce the "ing" as written. It's only with some words, and then only when I really get going and am saying a lot, that I make it more like an "n" sound, but that itself is often rare.
