Liaison between the auxiliary and the past participle?

Liaison between the auxiliary and the past participle?

Is there no liaison in "nous aurions été déçus" between aurions and été? I didn't hear it in the recording.

Bonjour Kevin ! I would say that, though I cannot see why the liaison here would be grammatically wrong, it does sound off to a French ear (such as mine), and people wouldn't pronounce it. I guess it's probably because it sounds a bit redundant given the previous liaison between "nous" and "aurons". Usually, we won't pronounce the liaison between the auxiliary and the past participle. I hope that's helpful !

Is there a lesson on when to make liasons (or not?)

Even though I live in France, I can't find any pattern to this.

I can only say that it's definitely coming soon
