Interesting.  I definitely have /ng/, at least in isolation.  I think
that in the middle of a sentance, it's /InNgVlf/, I've tried saying
sentences using that word, and it seems to have an epenthetic /N/
between the /n/ and the /g/, however, pure /INgVlf/ sounds somewhat odd.

You're somewhere in England, yes?
I'm in north Florida, USA.

So, other native speakers of English: what do you use in those words?
/ng/ or /Ng/ or something in between?  It would be interesting to see
which dialects use /n/, and which use /N/.
