We speculated in that paper that this was due to French listeners’ greater experience with phonetic and phonological differences among semivowel glides, given that French employs not only /w/ and /j/ like English, but also a third semivowel glide, the front-rounded /ɥ/ (as in huitre, “oyster”), which is lacking in English.
