Liaison is the pronunciation of a latent word-final consonant immediately before a following vowel sound. Technically, it is a type of external sandhi, which is disrupted in pausa. In French, most written word-final consonants are no longer pronounced and are known as latent or mute. For example, the letter s in the word les, 'the', is generally silent, but it is pronounced in the combination les amis, 'the friends'. In certain syntactic environments, liaison is impossible; in others, it is obligatory; in others still, it is possible but not obligatory and its realization is subject to wide stylistic variation.
