Etymology 1

From Old French plus, from Latin plus, from Old Latin *plous, from Proto-Indo-European *pleh₁-, *pelh₁u- (many).

Pronunciation

  • IPA(key): /ply/ in its positive sense if followed by an adjective or an adverb not beginning with a vowel, and always in its negative sense (e.g. il est plus grand que moi, or je n'en peux plus)
  • IPA(key): /plyz‿/ in the case of a liaison, i.e. if followed by an adjective or an adverb beginning with a vowel (e.g. tu dois être plus ambitieux)
  • IPA(key): /plys/ in its positive sense, when not followed by an adjective or an adverb (e.g. j'en ai plus que toi or avancez un peu plus, s'il vous plait)
  • (Quebec, informal) IPA(key): /py/ in its negative sense.

Adverb

plus

  1. more, -er (used to form comparatives of adjectives)
  2. more, -er (used to form comparatives of adverbs)
  3. (after a verb) more, -er (indicating a higher degree or quantity)
  4. (before a noun) more (indicating a greater quantity; followed by de)

  6. (preceded by a definite article) the most, -est (used to form superlatives of adjectives and adverbs)
  7. (usually with the negative particle ne, see usage notes below) no longer, not ... any more
Usage notes
  • There may be some difficulty for non-native speakers to detect the negativity or positivity of "plus". The negative sense is generally used with a ne, but sometimes the "ne" is dropped in colloquial speech. Thus in certain cases, some speakers may choose to pronounce the final /s/ of a positive plus (as /plys/) in order to make a distinction.
