comment What does Mr. Driller say when he picks up an oxygen tank?
because I don't know the phonetic alphabet or IPA and I can't write it. So the most convenient way for me is to use R since it comes from typing ら? Perhaps it would be more clear if I said that I cannot hear the onset of ら rather than saying I cannot hear R.

Honestly I not only cannot hear the あ sound, I also cannot hear the R sound that makes it ラッキー. It's intriguing that there's such a difference between different listeners.

comment Is 時間がありますか unnatural?
I did not mean the conclusion itself was confusing. I was referring to the possible mix-up of what "former" and "latter" refers to. It looks like that has been cleared up in an edit, so the confusion has been resolved.

comment Is 時間がありますか unnatural?
I have no supporting study to back up this claim. I posit that the transition from the k-sound from 間 to the g-sound from が (two velar sounds), is less smooth than the transition from 間 to the w-sound from は. I suppose a way to check this is to measure the は・が preference of deaf/mute Japanese, and compare it to the preference for non-deaf/mute.

comment Is 時間がありますか unnatural?
It might be slightly confusing since in "If I was asked which of が and は I would choose in the following examples", が is the former and は is the latter. But in the subsequent examples, the order is reversed such that は is the former and が is the latter. There is confusion in the closing statement "Frankly I don’t know why I chose the former than the latter".
