Bonjour ! One of the A2 level exercises asks which would be the correct beginning for the phrase « [X] a changé entre nous ? » and I'm having a hard time figuring out why the only acceptable answer here is the one with the full « qui ». I thought in front of the vowels we were supposed to make an elision in order to ease the pronunciation. Could you please help? Merci !
Good point, but as I understand it there is no elision after qui otherwise it would lead to confusion between que and qui before a vowel.
There is further information here:- qui Je ne sais pas qui il cherche. (qu’il = que + il)
Reference: Lawless french
Hope this helps.
Jim's right: except for some very few exceptions, the -i ending is never omitted before a vowel; only -e.
