comment “I am going to school” = “I am gonna school”?
In spoken English, in my dialect anyway, in a sentence like "I'm going to school", I would elide the to with school rather than the verb: "I'm goin' t'school." On the other hand, I would say "I'm gonna school you." I would guess that the difference is in whether the to is part of an infinitive verb or part of an object phrase (or howsomever the grammar actually works, which I am no expert on) and probably has something to do with how I would naturally assign emphasis to the words in the sentence.

This answer would be improved if you explained why these all spring to mind and how they are different from one another, and how you feel they would fit the request.

comment Use of otherwise to indicate contrast
I agree with @FumbleFingers that the proofreading aspect needs to be edited out, but I think there is a question here suitable for this site if we compare the function of otherwise in these constructions.

comment How can I express strong emotions without using Biblical or profane language?
It's not a debate competition, true, but it is a question-and-answer site and not a discussion forum. As it is explained in the FAQ, please avoid asking subjective questions where every answer is equally valid. These kind of questions are not suitable for our format. I'm not asking you to change what you want to know. I'm kindly suggesting that asking here is not on-topic for our site.
