IN THIS PROJECT DEVELOP THE NASAL SOUND NUMBER THREE: THE VELAR NASAL CONSONANT
CHARACTERISTICS: A velar sound. The back of the tongue closes against the soft palate. The closure is further forward if it follows on from a front vowel. The soft palate is lowered, and air passes out through the nasal cavity. /ŋ/ is voiced.
OTHER CHARACTERISTICS The consonant /ŋ/ is phonetically simple but phonologically complex. Phonetically, it is simple because it is no more difficult to produce than /n/ or /m/. Phonologically, it is difficult because it is not easy to describe the context in which in occurs. /ŋ/ does not occur as an initial position.
