    Nasal sound /ŋ/

    Greetings.
    In words with nasal sounds such as 'sing, ring, everything,' etc, should there be weak /g/ sound at the end? or a weak /k/ sound at the end of 'bank' for example.
    Many thanks.

    For most native speakers, no. Speakers of some dialects do end with a /g/.
    or a weak /k/ sound at the end of 'bank' for example.
    Where the word ends with the letter k, the final sound is normally /k/.
