    ing

    In verbs that end in "ing" is g pronounced? Do you say running or runnin? Or it depends on a special rule?

    Re: ing

    Technically speaking, this sound is nasal (comes through your nose) in English. If you check the dictionary, you'll find this symbol /ɳ/.
    Simply speaking, I think it's good to say it's pronounced in a weak way not strongly. It's true about the words ending in -ing.
