Runaway Bride

When the bride and groom at a wedding we were at were pronounced and they left down the aisle, there was concern to be heard:
  • Chloë (2.75): Oh no! She's getting away!

nk = ng

Chloë (2.75) has taken to a certain pronunciation quirk that's as cute as it is weird:
  • Monkey = Mongy
  • Winking = Winging
  • Tinkerbell = Tingerbell
