Gonna

  1. Gonna is a really weird word. It's a contraction of going to.

    If you read it a ton of times, it just doesn't even look like a word anymore. Anybody else have this problem with this word or any other words similar to it?

    Who even came up with gonna? Was it going to be gunna but they were like "Nah, it's gonna now."

    Sorry, but it just came to my mind.

  4. I don't think I actually ever wrote/typed that word :p And for speaking, I also don't think I've said it (often), but indeed, I do think it sounds weird :p I thought about it a few days ago, I think, and then I also came to that conclusion: "that word is weird" :p
  5. A lot of words are like that to me. Even the word "weird" sometimes sounds weird. I first had that feeling in first grade learning to spell "horse". Horse, horse, horse, horse, horse, horse, horse, ...
  6. I get this with pretty much any word if I read it enough times - semantic satiation as they call it :)
  7. "gonna" was spoken before it was ever written. just people speaking quickly, local slang, and then someone wanted to write it out.

  10. If you think that's weird try the Dutch variant: gaje :D

    "What are you going to do?" => "Wat ga jij doen?"
    "What you gonna do?" => "Wat gaje doen?" (note: in Holland we don't write it like that, so its kind of meant phonetically).

    And all of a sudden I know who is to blame for all this!

    Hulk Hogan! => "Whatcha gonna do when the 24" pythons in Hulkamania run wild on you? :mad:".

    But because he's a retired wrestler I guess we should pass on the blame to his "heir". I am of course talking about none other than John Cena! :p

    So in the end you got Cena to blame for all this.
  11. bad boys, bad boys
    whatcha gonna do
    whatcha gonna do
    when they cum fer eww
  12. I'm gonna give you a like for this.
  13. BUMP :)
