When natives speak, they reduce the pronunciation of certain words and phrases. This can be confusing for non-native speakers who are often unfamiliar with these reductions. Learning some common English reductions will improve your comprehension and make you sound more natural to native speakers.

English reductions are usually not taught in English language schools but you need to know reductions in order to understand conversations between native English speakers. Reductions are used extensively in TV, movies, music, literature, and in conversations among native English speakers.

Here are some common reductions:
Whassup: what is up
Gimme: give me
Lemme: let me
Gonna: going to
Gotta: got to
Wanna: want to
Dunno: do not know
Doncha: do not you
Gotcha: got you
Kinda: kind of
Lotta: lot of
Coulda: could have
Shoulda: should have
And so on.

Learn the rest of those to improve your english speaking skill like a native.
