Speaking and using 'et'
hi guys. I am confused when it comes to speaking when there is the word 'and'. For example, a cat and a man in french would be "un chat et un homme" . When i heard the narrator speaking, it seems like the 'et' is silenced. Can anyone help with these? Merci!
It's in the centre of the stomach. But don't push anyone's turtle button unless you know them REALLY well, as it may work differently than you expected!
2020-04-15 As relox84 points out, the “t” at the end of et serves only to change the pronunciation of the “e”. It is not itself pronounced. And the word et is never subject to a liaison, which is why you do not hear a “t” in et un homme. Like Melissa says, it’s a good habit to play the slow speed when you can just to make sure you don’t miss any little words.
