  • IPA: /ply/; in its positive sense if followed by an adjective (or an adverb) not beginning with a vowel, and always in its negative sense (e.g. il est plus grand que moi, or je n'en peux plus)
  • IPA: /plys/; in its positive sense, when not followed by an adjective or an adverb (e.g. j'en ai plus que toi or avancez un peu plus, s'il vous plait).

Usage notes

  • There may be some difficulty for non-native speakers to detect the negativity or positivity of "plus". The negative sense is generally used with a ne, but sometimes the "ne" is dropped in colloquial speech. Thus in certain cases, some speakers may choose to pronounce the final /s/ of a positive plus (as /plys/) in order to make a distinction.
