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