gotta - used in writing to represent the sound of the phrase "got to" when it is spoken quickly

“We've gotta go.” [=we have got to go]
“I gotta [=have got to] get a new pair of shoes.”



"Have to"/"have got to" - used to say that something is desired or should be done.

Hi,

You need to thank Anne Green. She provided the great answer for you.

The meaning between "have gotta" and just "gotta" is the same. When it is spoken, people use a shortened way to speak faster so they just use "gotta"

Grammatically, it is correct to say "have go to"

In writing, I recommend not using "gotta"
