Onglide?

I was watching Jeeves and Wooster on YouTube, and somebody left a comment on the way the actors did the American accents... they described more to an American accent 'than just rhoticizing the 'r's and adopting a nasal onglide'. Can someone point me to a definition of an onglide? Is it the same as a glide?
