Assunto:  /I/ and /i/ to Juju
 
Mensagem: 
/i/ and /I/ only contrast in stressed syllables or content words (like hill and heel for example).

Roughly speaking, according to Gimson´s An introduction to the pronunciation of English (London: Edward ArnoldGrim's) the vowel sound in city  varies according to the age of the speaker (older people tend to use /I/ according to this author).
