Technology is the key innovation of the 21st century which has a great influence upon every sector of human life. People in the last few decades have been getting the benefits of using technology in education. In recent time in the Covid 19 situation, the education is provided through online from the primary to the higher education level in many countries.

The Public and Private universities have also conducted classes from their respective places through Zoom, Google Meet, Facebook Live, and YouTube and so on. Here a noticeable progress occurred in the private universities in spite of having some challenges. As a faculty member of a private university, the researcher has got some experiences while teaching at university. From this concern the researcher has got the interest on conducting research on the private university students and teachers to check the real scenario of online teaching and learning here in Bangladesh.

At the suprasegmental level, studies on the major varieties of Nigerian English have identified characteristic nature of stress assignment and interactions, but little or no research has explored stress assignment on loanwords in Nigerian English. The study examines the stress placements on loanwords among educated Igbo and Yoruba speakers of English. A well-prepared text is read by sixty (60) educated Igbo and Yoruba speakers of English, and Daniel Jones’ 8th Edition Cambridge English Pronouncing Dictionary serves as a control variable. The study uses Praat 6.0 to ascertain the degree of prominence of each syllable in the tokens among the respondents (dependent and control). The samples are analyzed using the metrical theory of stress for theoretical relevance. Findings reveal that the stress patterns of educated Igbo and Yoruba speakers of English in loanwords are 65% and 70% (respectively) closer to British English (hence, BrE), while the average percentage for both educated Igbo and Yoruba is 67.5%, similar to BrE. The study shows that educated Igbo and Yoruba speakers of English preferably stress the second syllable regardless of what is obtainable among the native speakers.</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>JEL Classification Codes: </strong>H75.</p> <p><em>&nbsp;</em></p> Oluwasegun Matthew Amoniyan Abiola Mary Oladipo Odilia Ifeanyichukwu Ogunka Copyright (c) 2022 Abiola Mary Oladipo , Oluwasegun Matthew Amoniyan , Odilia Ifeanyichukwu Ogunka https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-12-30 2022-12-30 5 1 8 20 10.46545/aijelr.v5i1.275
