-ing

 I feel like this is a dumb questions but I'll stick with the "there is no such thing as a dumb question" maxim.

There is a feature of language that I'm sure has a label but I'm not aware of it. My friend, from Boston, pronounces all "-ing" as "-in." Is there a name for this? It's been driving me crazy!
