So theres no liaison for nous, vous forms. When we say 'nous haissons', we shouldnt stress the 's' in nous?

Hi Aarti,

As the verb 'haïr' (to hate) has what we call, un h aspiréh aspirate), we don't make the liaison to show that it is there.

Here are a few examples :

Ce sont des héros They are heroes.      ( the 's' is not pronounced)

J'adore les haricots = I love beans.          ( the ''s' is not pronounced)

Il y a une très belle vue en haut de la collineThere's a beautiful view from the top of the hill.    

Hope this helps!
