This paper reports an attempt to determine the segmentation of glides using existing knowledge about tonal alignment as reference. It is found that the likely onset of a glide is much earlier than what is acoustically the most obvious, i.e., the point where the formants reach their extremes. It is further found that there is indication that the point of formant extremes may in fact be the point of glide release.
