In the example above, the speaker pronounces the "s" in 'tous'. What is the rule here? I am confused on the s being pronounced. The sentence is:
Vous faites tous vos devoirs?
That's an interesting example because it depends on what you are trying to say -
Vous faites tous vos devoirs = You are all doing your homework
The -s is pronounced as it means all of you and it reiterates the vous, subject of faire in that sentence.
But if you said to children for instance -
Faites tous vos devoirs! = Do all your homework!
The 'tous' apply to devoirs and agrees with the noun devoirs and is the object of faire.
In this case the -s is not pronounced.
Take a look at the following Kwiziq lesson with more in-depth explanation -
Hope this helps!
