gonna definition by Wiktionary
- This spelling, like any eye dialect spelling, risks appearing condescending. Even when going to has the pronunciation that gonna denotes, it is usually spelled <going to>.
- Gonna, like the pronunciation it denotes, only occurs when the sense is roughly “will” or “shall”; hence “I’m gonna go now”, but not *“I’m gonna the mall.”
Written form of a reduction of "going to"
