Producing the Initial ‘Ng’ /ŋ/ in Asian Languages
- Cantonese and other Chinese Languages / Dialects (especially southern dialects)
- Bahasa Indonesia and Bahasa Daerah (regional Indonesian / Malay languages)
- Tagalog and other languages of the Philippines
- Hill Tribe Languages in SE Asia
This is not an exhaustive list.
I put this clip together as part of the resources for my free Language and Mind Mastery Group at http://stujay.com.
The origins of the initial ‘ng’ sound and functions it plays are fascinating. Understanding it will help you understand many other things about those languages as the ‘ng’ is a part of a ‘greater system’.
For Language and Mind Mastery Group members, I will be doing an extensive article on the ‘Ng’ sound – why it’s there, how to produce it and gaining a deep understanding on the functions that it serves in Indonesian, Thai, Cantonese, Vietnamese, Tagalog and other languages.
