Abstract: The present status of the merger of nasal endings & the merger of retroflexed & dental obstruents in Mandarin dialects of Chinese is examined. Confusions between -n & -ng in various sources are examined. Evidence indicates that the pairs -in/-ing & -en/-eng are the most unstable. Factors that may trigger an acceleration of the ongoing process of confusion & interchanges are identified. B. Annesser Murray.
