"You need a 2 a.m., he said. A what?i asked. " a 2 a,m,, you know someone you can count on to pick up at 2 a.m."- Sarah Deslson
Everyone should have a two a.m. I don't have a two a.m., but its still okay to think about it. I don't have a romance life, but I love romance novels, I love when the guys quotes in the book when he comforts the girl, and you can probably tell that in the end of the book they end up being together. Anyways, love. It's a strong feeling, but sometimes it gets to strong that it rips you apart. I don't have experience in love, but I have a sister who's heart has been ripped and thrown like it was nothing.And I have a mom who had a divorce with my dad. At this point I've just given up thinking about well... BEING IN LOVE for that matter. I've seen so many people torn by it. It looks like it just hurts, and honestly I don't want to get hurt. I'm not just saying it but I really don't want to make the same mistakes my parents did. If i ever do "Fall in love" I want it to not hurt. I do want to have a 2 a.m but what if the 2 a.m stops calling, stops texting, stops even talking to you.Your 2 a.m will find a girl that actually wants to be in love not a girl who a) doesn't know anything about love and b) doesn't want to have anything to do with it. I know probably one day I'll have a boyfriend, but my sisters first ex-boyfriend hurt her A LOT so what if it hurts? What if the love is so strong that it takes me out? I don't want to feel pain when I'm trying to understand Love.

Language contact is as old as man. As people move around to overcome their economic, political and social challenges, they move along with different languages. These languages meet and borrow from one another. The Igbo and the English languages are some of the instances of languages contact. This study investigated phonological processes the English loanwords in Igbo undergo. Some English loanwords were collated and analyzed using the questionnaire method. It is discovered that the loanwords are not just borrowed into the Igbo language; they do undergo different phonological processes like vowel and consonant modification, vowel insertion and deletion. It is also discovered that the pitch is not left out in the involved phonological processes. Words in English are changed from stressed words to tone words in Igbo. The study reveals the effects of the contact of English and Igbo. It also reveals the flexibility in the development of Igbo words.
