    "description": "<p>This chapter provides a brief overview of what is known about prosody and information<br>\nstructure in the Austronesian languages of Indonesia and East Timor. It emphasizes the fact<br>\nthat the prosodic systems found in these languages appear to differ substantially from the<br>\nbetter known systems found in languages such as English and German and finds that to date<br>\nthere is little evidence that prosody plays a major role in conveying information-structural<br>\ndistinctions. Of major import in this regard appears to be the fact that many Austronesian<br>\nlanguages in the area appear to lack lexical stress as well as lexical tone. Consequently,<br>\nintonational phrases lack (postlexical) pitch accents, the tonal inventory being restricted to<br>\na smallish number of edge tone combinations on the intonational phrase level plus a single<br>\nboundary tone on the level of intermediate phrases. The chapter concludes with a brief<br>\ndiscussion of a major exception to these generalisations, i.e. the group of (Austronesian)<br>\nWest New Guinea languages that show a bewildering variety of tonal and stress-related<br>\ndistinctions.</p>",
