Misol is the island where Matbat is spoken alongside Ma»ya. The f0 tracks of these Ma»ya dialects have been analyzed by means of a methodology that is very similar to that used in the analysis of Matbat tone. Just as was done for Matbat, (pseudo-)minimal sets were collected in a carrier utterance from eight native speakers. While the three Ma»ya tonemes each have a phonetically similar counterpart in the Matbat tone system, there are some important differences between the word prosodies of the two languages.

Here the epenthetic final /o/ is invariably present in utterance-final position. The Matbat Low Fall and the Ma»ya Fall are acoustically identical, so it is likely that one of them has influenced the other. It is more probable that Ma»ya influenced Matbat rather than the way around, since Matbat is only used on Misol, and could not have exerted an influence on the Waigeo and Salawati variants of Ma»ya, which also feature the epenthetic final /o/.

3 ROB GOEDEMANS & ELLEN VAN ZANTEN The experiments The combined reports on Indonesian stress and accent sketch a confusing picture. The first aim of this study is to resolve this confusion by determining the location of Indonesian word stress through experimental research. We keep open the possibility that Indonesian has a stressed (or metrically strong) penultimate syllable, as advocated in the traditional literature. We will measure the acoustic properties that are relevant for prominence for all the syllables in six four-syllable words in a production experiment.
