Elle va au marche

"Elle va au marche" i always thought that if there is a vowel right after like va and au that we abbreviate?

Hi Alyssa, 

What you are referring to is an 'elision' but you won't normally elide verbs as your sentence would lose all meaning.

Below is a page showing you the type of words that are usually elided -

toute chaude? I had "tout chaude", with tout an adverb modifying the adjective chaude. And why "le goûter" rather than 'la goûter"?

AlanC1 Kwiziq Q&A super contributor Correct answer

Although adverbs don't normally agree with adjectives, tout is a rather weird exception. If it's followed by a feminine adjective beginning with a consonant or aspirated h, then it agrees in gender and number.

Your other question on le/la goûter has been answered here:
