    It's among the annoying things iphone does. How can I get the damn thing to say type gonna and not change it to "going to"?

    Gonna is considered as slang.. I do not believe it's proper English when written but is used when spoken..

    I could be wrong though..

    Oh, I don't know how to change it because it's doing the correct / proper thing..

    Edit to add:

    Found this:

    It's a slang word. If there was a dictionary then you could add the word. Try the App Store and maybe there is away to extend voice recognition.

    Just tested it. It works fine for me every time I emphasize the word gonna and pronounce it a little different. If I say gunna, it does type it as gonna. If I say gonna without any emphasis, it types it as going to. Try saying gunna somewhat slowly and with more emphasis than your other words.
