Why wouldn't you abbreviate ta or ton to t' before a vowel?
Hi Victoria Lange,
The rules of elision do not include possessive adjectives. Take a look at the following Kwiziq page on elision -
et bonne continuation!
An elision only happens (with only a very few exceptions) if the -e of a word ending meets a vowel or h muet starting the following word. However, since the meeting of two vowels taxes the French tongue and ear, instead of an elision, they simply change the gender of the possessive pronoun.
