speak for yourself ! /ridn=/ is completely unnatural
to me. i'm somewhere between /ridN=/ and /ridIN/
depending on register.
|singing| comes out /sINN=/, /sININ/ or, bizarrely but
quite frequently, /sIj~IN/
and |going| is /g@UN/ ( or /g@U_IN/ if that's legal
XSAMPA ). strangely, actually, i seem to realise |go|
as [g@U] but |going| as [gVU_IN]. i wonder why . . .
