This paper explores the sociolinguistic factors associated with the maintenance or loss of the mid-front vowel contrast in the Catalan spoken by Spanish-Catalan bilinguals in three districts of Barcelona. It contributes to a better grasping of phonological variation within Barcelona and the sociolinguistic factors that are responsible for variation among its population.
