Jules Massenet wrote an operatic work about "Cleopatra". In act 2, there is an aria sung by the character "Marc Anthony", which translates in English to "Did he speak the truth".
The lyrics in the Massenet score are written:
a-t-il dit vrai ?
However, this may have been hyphenated simply to spread the syllables more effectively across the notes that it is sung to.
What is the correct French spelling for this phrase?
I feel it should be something like:
As t'il dit vrai ?
but I am not entirely sure.
