Pronunciation – Blending sounds
Do you know what ‘gonna’ means?
How about ‘wanna’?
Blending Sounds When Speaking
1 . gonna = going to
2. wanna = want to
This is how many people speak!
When people speak English they usually blend the sounds of the words together.
We usually DON’T say: What are you going to do tomorrow?
We WILL say: whatchya gonna do tomora?
Tip: People often speak like this, but they don’t usually write like this (sometimes they do write this on Facebook or in other media like text messages on their phones)
Can you think of any other common blended words like ‘gonna’ or ‘wanna’?
