What is the meaning of the ‘t’ in the phrase ‘ouvre-t-on’?
No meaning. It is there for pronunciation purposes only when forming inverted verbs ending in a vowel with il/elle/on.
I think That it may have two meanings Quand ouvre-t-on les cadeaux?(when do we open the gifts=because "on" can be used for "we")Quand ouvre-t-on les cadeaux?( when are the gifts opened= because "on" can be used for anonymous subjects in passive sentences
Its just a liaison for pronunciation because there are two vowels together otherwise
When noun is ending with vowel and subject is starting with vowel we have to add -t- in between them.
