Bonjour, and welcome to what I hope is an eclectic mix of French content that reflects my day to day encounters with news, commentary and learning materials, mainly from a variety of francophone sources that I follow on social media.

Lawless French
Enchaînment
"In French, whenever a word ending in a consonant sound is followed by a vowel or h muet, that consonant sound is transferred onto the next word. This euphonic technique is called enchaînement and it’s one of the aspects of French pronunciation that sometimes makes it difficult to determine where one word ends and the next begins."

I mention enchaînement in my book but gloss over it by generalising the effect under the banner of liaison, but the two euphonic techniques are subtly different, as explained in this article.
