Gonna or Going To :

How do you pronounce “going to” in phrases like “going to walk the dog”? “Gonna,” right? Almost everyone uses this slurred pronunciation, but it’s not acceptable in formal writing except when you’re deliberately trying to convey the popular pronunciation.

In very formal spoken contexts you might want to (not “wanna”) pronounce the phrase distinctly.
