Are we saying that "gonna" is not an appropriate word?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Klgregonis

We should probably stick to standard, not spoken spelling. I think most of us recognize that native speakers, in the US at least, usually say gonna and wanna instead of carefully saying going to and want to, but allowing that as a spelling is going to be confusing to people doing the reverse tree, or laddering.

What is wrong with, "I am going to phone (or ring) my mother"? I have been reporting this for months now?

I submitted exactly that [ 'I'm going to phone my mother] - and it was accepted.

I am going to ring my mother. Why is this wrong?

It's a missing alternative translation. Please use the report a problem button during lessons to report errors or missing alternative translations.
