    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;This paper reports the results of two perception experiments on the prosody of Papuan&lt;br&gt;
Malay. We investigated how native Papuan Malay listeners perceive prosodic prominences&lt;br&gt;
on the one hand, and boundaries on the other, following the Rapid Prosody Transcription&lt;br&gt;
method as sketched in Cole &amp;amp; Shattuck-Hufnagel (2016). Inter-rater agreement between the&lt;br&gt;
participants was shown to be much lower for prosodic prominences than for boundaries.&lt;br&gt;
Importantly, however, the acoustic cues for prominences and boundaries largely overlap.&lt;br&gt;
Hence, one could claim that inasmuch as prominence is perceived at all in Papuan Malay, it&lt;br&gt;
is perceived at boundaries, making it doubtful whether prosodic prominence can be usefully&lt;br&gt;
distinguished from boundary marking in this language. Our results thus essentially confirm&lt;br&gt;
the results found for Standard Indonesian by Goedemans &amp;amp; van Zanten (2007) and vari-&lt;br&gt;
ous claims regarding the production of other local varieties of Malay; namely, that Malayic&lt;br&gt;
varieties appear to lack stress (i.e. lexical stress as well as post-lexical pitch accents).&lt;/p&gt;</description>
