Dear Teachers,

1. I just know I love her and she loves me. That's all that matters.

- What does "that's all that matters" mean?

2. I guess you are some lucky guy.

- This means " I guess you are one of the lucky guys", right?

3. Hi! Mike. We're having a party tonight. Wanna come join us?

- I think "wanna come join us" is American English, and "wanna come and join us" is more grammatical, right?

Thanks a bunch to Teachers,

Stevenukd.

1. I just know I love her and she loves me. That's all that matters.

- What does "that's all that matters" mean? This is the only important thing.

2. I guess you are some lucky guy.

- This means " I guess you are one of the lucky guys", right? Yes.

3. Hi! Mike. We're having a party tonight. Wanna come join us?

- I think "wanna come join us" is American English, and "wanna come and join us" is more grammatical, right? This is casual talk, the presence of and is of no big concern.

Stevenkud, I know you are usually quoting others, but you are still young - we can still have an effect on you. I implore you to not use "wanna" and similar words yourself, in any context uther than IMs and e-mails to your closest companions. Please. And thank you.

Dear Grammar Geek!

I didn't know the word "wanna" is impolite to say. Because I often see and hear it on Cable TV, and in English lessons. Now I know it's not good to use. Thanks for your advice.[:-D] [Emotion: big smile]

P/s: Anyway thanks very much for your help for the last few months. I really appreciate it.

Best wishes,

Stevenukd.

First, let me apologize for mistyping your name. I'm really sorry about that.

"Wanna" isn't impolite to SAY. As CJ can explain, it's just what ends up coming out of our mouths when we say "want to" because it blends together. You will HEAR it all the time.

But when you WRITE it, you are being far too casual for all but the most informal circumstances (like IM). Just write "want to" - because that's what we're saying, even if does come out "wanna."

Thanks. I'm on a personal mission to eradicate all use of u, 2, wanna, etc. in this forum. People learning English don't need to be confused by that kind of shorthand.
