Abstract:

This study describes the effects of prominence and boundary marking on the
temporal and melodic structures of two regional languages of Indonesia,
viz. Toba Batak, a stress language, and the author's native language Betawi
Malay, a non-stress language. 

Experimental evidence shows that, unexpectedly, lengthening effects were
more than twice as strong in the non-stress Betawi Malay as in Toba Batak.
Durational prominence effects in the stress language Toba Batak are
comparable to those found in western stress languages at the word level,
but not at lower levels: stressed syllables, especially consonants, are
hardly affected. The author argues that the use of duration as a stress
correlate is restricted by the phonemic consonant contrast in the language.
Arguably, to compensate for this, prominence-related pitch movements, which
are tightly connected to the stressed syllable, occur in non-prominent as
well as prominent words in Toba Batak, whereas in western stress languages
such movements only occur in prominent words. In non-stress Betawi Malay
prominence-related pitch movements are larger but vary considerably in
shape and position; they serve to cue accents and boundaries, but not
stress position.

To determine the audible consequences of the native language for the
production of Dutch stress, three perception experiments were run. The
native language clearly affects the prosody of second-language speech. Toba
Batak speakers of Dutch sound more acceptable to Dutch listeners than
Betawi Malay speakers do.
 
This book is of special interest to experimental linguists working on
stress and intonation and to linguists working in the field of
second-language acquisition.
