'EnchaƮnement is the phenomenon whereby the consonant sound at the end of a word is transferred to the beginning of the word that follows it. Unlike liaisons, which cause otherwise silent letters to be pronounced, with enchaƮnement, the consonant would be pronounced whether or not it was followed by a word beginning with a vowel or mute H.'
