This question already has an answer here:

I don't want any more milk.

I think the translation should be

Je ne veux plus de lait.

Is plus here pronounced with or without the s? I know that in general it is pronounced without the s in negations, but with the s when it is followed by de and a noun. In this case, which rule applies?

  • @Andreas I don't see the case "plus de" in that link. – user11550 May 8 '17 at 4:59
  • It's case 1. in the accepted answer (negative particle). – Laure May 8 '17 at 6:55
  • You pronounce the 's' in 'plus' when there's a positive connotation of 'more'. "tu en veux plus (plooss)?" " do you want any more?" . To be distinguished from "tu n'en veux plus (ploo)?" " you won't want any more?" - sorry struggling foreigners :-) but so the 's' or not adds to your chances of understanding. – user13512 May 8 '17 at 22:04

Je ne veux [ploo] de lait.

Since it has a negative context. [Read more here]

    What does [ploo] mean? It's neither a word nor the pronunciation of a word. Anyway the answer to the question had already been given on FL as pointed out in @Andreas's comment above. – Laure May 8 '17 at 6:59
  • C'est vrai qu'on ne prononce pas le "s", mais "ploo"? "Plu" ou en IPA "ply" – Quidam May 8 '17 at 14:41
