/ng/ Sound Spelled NG Word List

By Rodney Everson

The /ng/ sound has just two spellings, ng and just n.

It is always found at the end of a word, or a chunk of a longer word. The list of two-syllable words is just a sampling of the words ending in the suffix "ing" that could have been included in the database. For example, neither sitting nor standing are in the database.

Of the 7,000 words in the database constructed from a popular children’s dictionary, 130 of them are words with the /ng/ sound spelled "ng".

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.
