What does "you might wanna" imply here? Can you tell me the nuance of "you might wanna"?
The phrase "you might wanna" is actually just an informal short form of "You might want to" (do something). Usually we use "You might want to..." to suggest something that we think someone should do. For example, if a teacher thinks that her student should study more, she can say: Ex: You might want to spend more time studying and less time playing video games. This phrase is polite enough to use in a variety of situations: with strangers, with family members, with coworkers, etc. However, "you might wanna" is very casual and should really only be used with very close friends or family members who you are comfortable speaking informally with. Ex: Honey, you might wanna trim that beard before your interview.
