[w], as in win, is made by raising the back of the tongue toward the velum while rounding the lips at the same time, so it is classified as a voiced bilabial glide. [hw] is produced just like [w], except that it is voiceless. Not all speakers of English use this sound. [j], as in year, is made with a slight closure in the palatal region. It is a voiced palatal glide
