Is there a rule for using liaison after "mais."
I hear the different usages of liaison with "mais" before words beginning with a vowel. In your video "La Bretagne se révèle en Côtes d'Armor" the speaker sometimes uses it and sometimes does not before the same sound, making her difficult to understand. Is it simply facultative or is there more to it. Thanks.

Liaisons after 'mais' in French are not compulsory.
When 'mais' is followed by an adverb which modifies it, the liaison is very frequent but optional,
e.g. mais encore, mais alors, mais enfin.
Hopes this helps!
