comment What is the correct pronunciation of such words as “leur”, “leurs”, “je meurs”, “il meurt”?
I would use forvo.com for things like this. Reverso also has native pronunciations for every word in its database.

comment “C'est du mauvais français” du vs de ?
Yes, this is not the point of the question~ I know de le contracts to du. I am asking why le is present at all, why we are saying du mauvais français rather than de mauvais français, as you might when saying J'ai plus d'argent. But thank you anyway.

comment When does one pronounce the 's' in plus?
Not sure if @ tags work cross-answer, so @Gille can you respond to my comment on the answer below this? I am confused by the answers being contradictory yet both having a large number of upvotes.

This at odds with @Gille 's answer, whose #2 bullet suggests your first rule is not correct.

comment Explication de « lui dit-il » et « lui dit-elle »
Easy way to get this straight is simply to know that il cannot be an object and lui cannot be a subject. This is no different from English where you could never, ever correctly say "Me want food" or "She loves I." <However elle can be an object sometimes, if it follows a preposition. Sigh>

comment To what extent are liaisons optional? Can I have some examples?
This is the core of my question though -- aside from just learning through experience, can anyone suggest how I would know the difference between optional and mandatory liaisons ?

comment The word order of “de ne pas avoir à”
Infinitive form, not original form. Words like these help a lot with googling things :)

Thank you for your answer! I mostly just wanted to give Gilles a bounty for a really magnificent explanation up top there, but this is a solid answer too.
