IPA: /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).

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#French|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.
