sec -> sèche (not secque?)

sec -> sèche (not secque?)

In sec I can hear the -c but according to an exercise it falls in the first case and becomes sèche. Is it an exception or is the masculine -c not really heard that much? Merci

Bonjour Antonios,

You are correct: "sec" is indeed an exception, as you do pronounce the 'c' but the feminine still is "sèche".

That lesson needed some cleaning up, and it's now been updated to include more explanation.

Please have a look:

Merci !
