Pronunciation of "plus"

Pronunciation of "plus"

Is there one place where the pronunciation of "plus" is explained? I'm halfway through A1 and it seems sometimes the "s" is pronounced and other times not. I did a search but just came up with lots of individual cases. Are there any general rules stated in one place or is it all idiosyncratic except for the liaisons? Thanks!

Bonjour William,

The pronounciation of ‘plus’ in French is rather complex at times.

Please see link: Grammar-Plus

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée!
