    Pronuciation

    Please can someone provide me an audio of how to pronounce the following Thaana combinations?

    alifu-abafili-alifu-sukun
    alifu-abafili-thaa-sukun
    alifu-aabaafili-thaa-sukun
    alifu-abafili-shaviyani-sukun

    I understand that alifu-sukun and shaviyani-sukun take on different pronunciations depending on where they are postioned in a word. Also, I understand there is a nasal "ng" soung in Dhivehi. Please can someone tell me how the "ng" sound is represented in Thaana? Example the word, nishaanang.
