I notice that my post did not reflect the IPA symbols (International  
Phonetic Association). Basically:
From the OED
Pronunciations:
hwiN(g)@(r)
_hwIndz@(r_ (mailto:hwIndz@(r) ))
"The pronunciation with /ng/ ... is vouched for by several instances in rime; 
that  with /dz/ is indicated by the spelling  whinjer (quot. 1823) and 
implied by the form of Gael. cuinnsear  dagger, sword, which is a loan-word 
from Sc."
Cheers,
JL
