Why you should pronounce the silent endings (peuv-ENT, aim-ENT) ?


Recommended Posts

Something I noticed while listening on youtube to Pelléas and Mélisande by Claude Debussy, is that the singers always pronounce the endings (peuv-ENT, aim-ENT). This opera was composed 100 years ago. Was french so different then? It seems implausible to mispronounce so many words for purely musical reasons.
