I’ve always loved the word “finna”. Was very happy to see it called out in Kory Stamper’s Word by Word: The Secret Life of Dictionaries. 📚

The word “finna” is an excellent example: it’s common in Southern English as an alteration of “fixing to,” which is itself a Southernism for “going to,” and it rarely appears in edited print outside the American South.
