Do you know how to pronounce 'PLUS' in French?

Here are the 3 different ways to pronounce the word plus:

1 - [plys]
2 - [ply]
3 - [plyz]

--------------------1 - [plys]--------------------


When it has a positive sense.
When it's an adverb that designates the French words encore - davantage.
We use it to compare.

Verb + plus:

I ate more than you did.
J'ai mangé davantage que toi.
Plus de + noun:

At the end of the sentence:

I want more of it.
J'en veux encore.


Addition: 2 + 5 = 7

Another example: Parler français est un plus.
Speaking French is an advantage.
