I recently asked the following question: Are [w] and [j] considered to be consonants?
The question was closed because it was said to be a duplicate of this question: Are there semi-vowels besides [w] and [j] and which are most common?
I respectfully submit that these two questions are neither duplicates nor near-duplicates and that they require different answers. The latter question concerns the number and frequency of semivowels. My question concerns the classification of [w] and [j].
In light of these considerations, I ask that my question be re-opened.
