Liaisons

In the pronunciations for this lesson there don”t appear to be any liaisons between the est and the à. For example “c’est à moi” “sont à elles” we can”t hear the letter t. Is it wrong in these cases not to liaise?

This relates to:
Expressing possession with être à -

Bonjour Paul,


The liaison in these examples is optional: using it would make the phrase very formal.


See optional liaisons, section 6.

Merci Laura. J'avais oublié que le français est une langue si espiègle! (Mais j'aime les règles optionnelles!)
