    About to = Boutta? It’s too difficult to hear for me.

    I've heard that if you use these reduced words too much, you'll be considered stupid. Is that true?? 🤔

    @CHIHARU Definitely not, everyone uses these. Of course when you write formally these shouldn’t be used and if you need to speak really formally, then it’s best to try to avoid these. Boutta isn’t said by everyone but everyone uses contractions in their daily life
