/ng/ Sound Spelled N Word List
By Rodney Everson
The /ng/ sound has just two spellings, ng and just n.
The "n" spelling of the /ng/ sound is found in two situations, when the combination of sounds /ng/+/g/ or /ng/+/k/ occurs. Thus, we don’t spell finger as “fing-ger” and we don’t spell ankle as “ang-kle”. In both cases, the letter "n" represents the /ng/ sound.
Of the 7,000 words in the database constructed from a popular children’s dictionary, 99 of them are words with the /ng/ sound spelled "n".
Note on the word divisions: Each word is divided into chunks determined by the unique and effective OnTrack Reading Multisyllable Method. The chunks are not syllables.
