Abstract : We assessed the Gradient Phonemicity Hypothesis by testing whether a duration-based derived contrast in Scottish English can be seen phonemic just as a contrast based on vowel quality. We examined the electrophysiological correlates of the perception of such contrasts in native Scottish and French speakers. Results revealed differences between the two groups, mostly in the perception of durationbased contrasts and suggest that derived contrasts may be regarded as phonemic contrasts.
