>nationality uses it. Is it pronounced "ing" there, too?
i had a coworker named mike ng recently. everyone said "ing" but i feel that
that probably wasn't really technically correct. i don't know.
i believe it's vietnamese, but i could be wrong.
i also know a peter nguyen. people say "n'guyen" basically. (as opposed to
"ing'uyen" i suppose.)
