Goin’, goin’, gone

 

Sir, – When did people stop pronouncing the final “g” in a word? I notice it all the time. They say goin’, takin’, makin’, enjoyin’, etc. And it is spreading. We must halt the slide now, or this lazy approach will become de rigueur and we will end in a place akin to the current situation where no BBC presenter seems capable of pronouncing the word “sixth”. They all say “sickth”. – Yours, etc,
