This question already has an answer here:
I'm not a native English speaker so I might not be exactly accurate with this, but whenever people (e.g. in films) say fucking, it sounds something like fucken.
There's no "g" at the end and instead of "i", I hear "e" (like in the word men).
Why is that? Am I that deaf or is the pronunciation really different from what the spelling would suggest?
If it is, why do people pronounce it this way? Why is it different than any other word ending with -ing (e.g.looking)?
