MINGING. Is the G hard like Grover? Or G, George? [ETA] Got it, thank you!!

(And you're welcome for that ear worm, if you're of an age.)

Really!? I've been saying it with a soft G. GOOD TO KNOW!

bear in mind I live in Newcastle and therefore I hear it in a Geordie/Mackem accent

ming-in (as in the china and the opposite of out, the g is hard enough to get you from one half of the word to the other)

Hope that helps!?

And the lass who sits behind me at work was chuffed and little embarrassed when I told her I heard her voice when trying to describe the pronunciation!

I always thought it was a soft g, too. Good to know.

I know, right? I'm getting some VO work done, and needed to make sure it was being pronounced correctly. *rainbow* THE MORE YOU KNOW.

It's definitely and "ing" sound,in both cases, rather than a really hard, stressed "g". Almost, but not quite, "min(g)-in(g)"

To rhyme with 'singing'. Like so! :)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
