linking words

Postby 94BANSHEE » Thu Oct 21, 2004 4:09 pm

hi. i notice that when we link the following words using "want to" there a difference with "he, she and it".

for example, when we use "I, we, they or you" it sounds like this:
I want to - I wanna, etc.

but when using he,she or it its sounds different:

He wants to - He wans-ta.

is because of the "s" ??

thanks!
