Does that mean that the final -s is always pronounced if the meaning is positive? Is that how French people distinguish between 1) J'ai plus du temps and 2) J'ai plus de temps (where 2 is really Je n'ai plus de temps with the ne omitted as it often is in conversation). How do native French listeners tell the difference?
Yes that's right! That's how it is done.
J'ai plus [plu-ss] de temps -> more
J'ai plus [plu] de temps -> no more
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
