This question is related to my previous question: Why does “singer” have /ŋ/ and “longer” have /ŋg/? but not a duplicate.
From Herrison's answer, I learned that the -er in both "singer" and "longer" is not the same:
Singer and longer both end in the letters -er, but they don't end in the same suffix: singer ends in the -er suffix that forms agent nouns, while longer ends in the -er suffix that forms comparative adjectives.
Now I wonder what will happen if I attach the verb making suffixes -ize (e.g. materialize) and -ify (e.g. "intensify") to a word that ends in /ŋ/ (say ring). The [ŋg] is found in middle of words such as finger, younger, stronger etc.
Let's say there is a word (not a verb) that ends in /ŋ/ and we want to make it a verb by adding -ize or -ify to it, will the ending /ŋ/ become [ŋg] or it will remain [ŋ]? For example, suppose I want to make "anything" a verb by adding -ize or -ify to it:
- anything /ˈɛnɪθɪŋ/ + ize = anythingize /ˈɛnɪθɪŋaɪz/ or /ˈɛnɪθɪŋgaɪz/?
- anything /ˈɛnɪθɪŋ/ + ify = anythingify /ˈɛnɪθɪŋɪfaɪ/ or /ˈɛnɪθɪŋgɪfaɪ/?
I am talking about the accents that are considered standard (Southern British and General American). In simple words, the accents in which "singer" has only [ŋ] not [ŋg]
(NOTE: I am not concerned about what meaning it would give. I am merely asking about "pronunciation").
