I Gotta Go Pee! special action. But what are the English words or phrases that native speakers use to describe this?
Of course, scientifically it’s known as “urination”. However, not many people, say, “Hey, I need to urinate.” It sounds too formal!
In America, we commonly try to avoid, as much as possible, any comments or discussion of these physical needs. In a public setting, I usually prefer to avoid saying anything. I just go when I have the opportunity. In a social setting like a dinner party, I often just say 'Excuse me', and get up and go to the bathroom. If you need to ask someone where the bathroom is, you can politely say; “excuse me, could you please tell me where the restroom/bathroom/mens room or ladies room is?”
