Phonological-phonetic sound systems are abstractions\ud away from substance, so while they are\ud grounded in biological capacity, they also reflect\ud phonetically un-natural relationships arising from a\ud variety of linguistic factors. Sociolinguistic variation\ud is one of these non-biological factors.\ud Pilot articulatory results are presented from\ud derhoticised Scottish English. It can have onset/\ud coda allophony far more radical than the systems\ud that are normally examined in articulatory\ud research. Ultrasound analysis shows acoustic\ud rhoticity in codas may have a post-alveolar constriction\ud so delayed that acoustic rhoticity is covert.\ud Perceptual recoverability of social identity has to\ud be considered in addition to plain phonetic factors.
