Pronunciation / The flow in the rhythmic group

When you speak French, you do not separate each word, you group them together, linking them. You pronounce a word group as you would a very long word: this is called a rhythmic group.

If a word ends in a consonant that is pronounced, and the next word starts with a vowel, you link the two together:

Relooking_avec Fabrice

Mon nouvel_appartement


Il_habite à Paris

The rhythmic group is a word group pronounced in a single breath. A rhythmic group is usually associated with an idea.
