    Default Wanna,Gonna...

    What do "wanna" and "gonna" mean ?

    Besides...

    "im gonna got going" and "i got to go"

    whats " got to go"? Does it mean obligation ?

    Wanna - want to
    Gonna - going to.

    These are more common in AE but now also becoming popular in BE - except with me.

    "I'm gonna get going" - I'm going to leave.
    "got to go" - I have to/must leave - can be obligation but also a simple statement that you have some reason for leaving.
