Welcome back to love English. In today's lesson I'm going to talk about
reductions. If you want to sound more like a native or indeed if you want to
understand us better when we speak then this lesson is really gonna help you
they forget you've got to subscribe if you want to keep learning click that
button below and don't forget to find us on our social media Facebook Instagram
Twitter and snapchat today I want to talk to you about reductions now these
are a very simple but effective way to help you sound a lot more native they
are colloquial that means they are more spoken than written you would only
really write these words in text messages and very informal emails and
messages to friends you certainly wouldn't write them in an academic essay
or formal email or letter so let's start with wanna what up I wanna you wanna we
wanna they wanna but he/she it one stuff one stuff so we've got two forms there
one up and one stir one A and one stir although we might be using colloquial
English we still needs to make sure we have our third person s when we reduce
these words together now be careful of the pronunciation of water it is not
wanna wanna but wanna water okay you can see the schwa being used quite clearly
there at the end and of course at the end what do you need the infinitive verb
I've heard some people say I want to go in I want to shopping no I want to go I
want to shop I want to eat I want to play I want to study English with Layla
and Sabra so I wanna is I want to it's really rare that you would hear an
English person say I want to when we're speaking fast we would
say I wanna I wanna now in question forms we could also use it do you want
to go do you want to go but listen very carefully there do you want to go to the
shops we've used you in a weak form we've used the schwa they're now gonna
in much the same way that we reduce one out we go to gonna so going to this is a
future form and one thing you must remember to do is add the verb to be the
future form going to is be going to so I'm gonna go you're gonna go we're gonna
go they're gonna go he's gonna go she's gonna go listen that's my pronunciation
of he and she the s4 is is actually pronounced this is he's gonna go she's
gonna go okay gotta any interrogative form question for you can in contrast to
the affirmative in the interrogative you can actually omit the verb to be again
this is more colloquial spoken it is not correct grammar but if I'm asking you a
question I might say you gonna subscribe you're
gonna subscribe rather than saying are you going to subscribe are you gonna
subscribe so really informal and be careful because unless you're a more
advanced learner of English you might not want to pick up any bad habits
so occasionally could omit the verb to be
you're gonna go out what you're gonna do what you're gonna do where you gonna go
where they gonna go where are we gonna go but be careful because he/she an
exception here we really wouldn't omit the verb to be with say where's she
gonna go where's she gonna go really because the S is contracted with the
question word and it flows quite nicely still what's she gonna do where's she
gonna go it still flows a really well point of these reductions is that they
help us speak faster and really the flow of speech is much easier you don't have
to stop and start to pronounce every single syllable
now gotta gotta in replacement of have got to or must it's an obligation I've
got to do the shopping I've got to go out I've got to work
tomorrow now we can say I've got her or I got her
I would prefer I've got to I'd say I have got to I think with American
English you could probably reduce this down further to I got her I got her but
listen very carefully although it is G OTT a the tea actually
when I speak quite fast is more of a D sound I gotta I gotta go or I've gotta
go you could say either I gotta go or I've gotta go so I've gotta do the
housework I've got to do my homework remember with that person it would be
she's got it all he's got her but I've got her
we've got her they've got us you've gotta go study play whatever it might be
we need the infinitive verb because it is essentially - I have to do something
right finally a really simple one but some think that if you hear it you might
not understand don't know don't know so I don't know becomes Danai we wouldn't
really say she de no or he didn't know because of course that's not at the
third person it would be she doesn't know he doesn't know you might hear
people say it but it's not grammatically correct and really is a bit more
informal than I like so as with anything practice makes perfect so I think you
and I are on quite a friendly informal basis why not try using one a runner or
even gutter down a below tell me what you have to do using I got up I got to
do my homework I've gotta call my mom tell me what you want to learn
English I want to learn more about conditionals I want to learn more about
learning vocabulary tell me what you're gonna do this week write those sentences
in the comment box below and try saying them practice using that English to
sound more native
