The fvck is a finna?
@Fellacio Jones, Ahem. "Finna" is a slang term in which the words "fixing" and "to" are combined. This is for the sake of brevity in order to increase efficiency of topics most who use this term wish to discuss.
@Fellacio Jones, was thinking the same thing!
@Agent New Mexico, ok... Maybe. But what happened to "going to" or "gonna"? "I'm gonna eat some cake."
@Fellacio Jones, “I’m finna eat cake” is faster than “I am going to eat some cake”
@nemestrinus , but not faster than "I'm gonna eat cake"
@Fellacio Jones, "finally" or something?
@Fellacio Jones, Correction, good sir. You see, saying "Finna eat some cake" only takes one second, whereas saying "I'm going to eat some cake" takes a whopping two or even three seconds.
@Agent New Mexico, I am white guy from the USofA, so I prefer to say things like "I'mma eat some cake". So I feel like both I'm finna or I'm gonna both take to long.
@Fellacio Jones, Tell me, my fellow man, are you, by amy chance, from the Northern part of the United States? "Finna" and "Gonna" are quite popular phrases down where I am in the South.
@Agent New Mexico, originally from Virginia. I'm in Utah for medical school.
@Fellacio Jones, fixing to
@Fellacio Jones, That might explain it. Certain words and phrases tend to change based on location. Kind of soda and pop.
@Agent New Mexico, yeah that's another one. I just say "you want a Coke or something?" Meaning that Coke has replaced it's representative noun. Like Kleenex or band aid or Bruce Banner #3
@Agent New Mexico, Wait, is the food broken?
@nemestrinus , it also sounds really dumb
@Click to toggle, I know it sounds dumb, the people who choose to use those types of words tend to not be the most educated and such. I was just replying to him as to why they would say “finna” instead of “going to” in this particular instance
Edit: replied to wrong person, was meant for TR8R
@nemestrinus , I think you replied to the wrong person.
@Click to toggle, yeah, I wish there was a delete button, realized after I hit the send button
Oh, you want some cake?
Let me sing you the song of my people
What is it an African air cake?
Will people please stop speaking in tongues for the sake of saving syllables? I'm getting flashbacks to my literature lessons on 1984 and the bastardisation of the English language
For a second this was a blank cd holder.
