Today's insight

A way to simplify things is to think of short phrases as if they were single words. "il y a" is an obvious example. With "j'ai" as a single word, one does not have to think about the rule were the terminating vowel of a word must be replaced with an apostrophe when the next word begins with a vowel. And with "ce qui est", one does not need to think about the rules about when to use "ce que" vs "ce qui".

Bonjour Joakim, Very true. Next step is to think of longer phrases that you use all the time as single words. :-)
