The perception of a derived contrast in Scottish English

Abstract : This paper reports on ongoing experiments related to the perception of atypical phonological contrasts. It was hypothesized that the quasi-phonemic status of a derived contrast in Scottish English would induce atypical responses, yielding behavioural correlates with intermediate values between phonemicity and allophony. The results show that some of the Scottish participants produce identification slopes that are quite similar to the French allophonic control group while other Scottish listeners show more phonemic responses.
