The digraph ng is a velar nasal sound.
The sound of ng is:
ng: king, ring, sing.
Ng is a digraph, which means that there are two consonants together that only represent one sound. This digraph is produced when the tongue touches the soft palate, in the back of the mouth, the position of velar consonants. As ng is a nasal sound, the airflow passes through the nose.
- ng: is voiced, so the vocal cords vibrate to produce the sound.
