    pronunciation of 'along'

    Dear teachers...

    What's the correct pronunciation of 'along'?

    Some dictionaries say it should be (ə-lông, ə-lng) or əˈlɒŋ
    Sometimes I can hear the /g/.

    Which one is right? both?

    Thank you

    Like a + long /əˈlɔŋ/ in sentences like "I have a long beard."

    A final g is present only in some dialects (or rather patois).
