Seriously, I don't know. I'm from Texas.
Go with thang. I like that one.
I would go with Kevin G on that one.
It is thing, there is no such thing as thang.
Well Rick says "stuff and thangs" so I guess it's not that much of a sin... Or is it?
It's certainly not a standard spelling for narrative, but there is a regional pronunciation that would seem to make an A of the I, and for about 10 min it was a thing to say thang even outside said region, but those 10 min are long past.
'ain't nothin' like a G thang'
You use whichever you want, Miss Thang, get on with your bad self.
If you wouldn't use "ain't" or "gonna" in a given writing situation, don't use "thang."
It would be "thing".
Unless you're writing dialogue for someone from Texas, then feel free to "thang" it up.
Separate names with a comma.
