I notice the liaisons are with the v of 'pouvent', t of 'vertes', but not the ending letters of the words. This seems different from what we have been told before?

Liaisons are when a silent letter at the end of a word become pronounced when followed by vowel sounds. The letters you mention are always pronounced in these words.


I was so tempted to put "asparagi", is it accepted?
