Trickier Than One Would Think: How to Pronounce Plus
Here is an interesting article about how to pronounce plus.
Here are a few examples:
S when you pronounce the s
s when you don't
1.1 Un pluS un égal deux(one plus one equals two). PluS ou moins(more or less).
1.2 C'est un grand pluS d'avoir deux voitures(Having two cars is a big advantage).
1.3 Il est pluS apte que toi pour ce poste(He is more able than you for this job).
2.1 Je n'aime plus le lait(I don't like milk anymore).
2.2 Il est plus fort que toi(He is stronger than you).
As Le_Cid mentionned, /z/ for case 1.3 because in French when a word finishes by an /s/ and the next word starts by a vowel or an "h" ** the /s/ changes to a light /z/.
**Depending on the aspiration of the "h" in the word: Des héros doesn't work because there is a stop in pronounciation before the "h", so des-héros and not des-z-héros. But you can say des-z-hommes-z-heureux for "Des hommes heureux".
Precision concerning the first rule for those who won't bother to click the link: it is pronounced /s/ in cases 1.1. and 1.2. but /z/ in case 1.3.
Thanks for the audiobook link. I often listen to current french novels on audible and read the text in kindle so I can annotate as I go. They aren’t free but I find the combination works well for me. I am currently reading Petit Pays by Gaël Faye.
