Gonna [Aug. 1st, 2013|08:53 pm]

When I've read people use the word "gonna" in papers, emails or applications it comes off as lazy and immature, but in other contexts read: FB, twitter, tumblr etc. I don't get that impression. Gonna is now defined as a contraction for 'going to.' Like a wildcard in the English structure game this contraction adds an 'a' in addition to the omission of letters 'o i n g t o.'

How our language changes in response to culture is facsinating, but I think our ability to document our symbols so clearly on a scale never before available, communicating, recording, self-tracking the morphology of spelling and pronuciation is changing history.
