Syllabic /N/? Where do you find those? (Both in words and in space.)

Barbara Babbles; In many dialects a final -ing is replaced by syllabic n, so insead of saying "singing" a person with that dialect says "singN". The Brummie accent is even odder, using the nasal "ng" sound but voicing the "g" too, so you get "sing-ging-g"! Barbara
