      > Wrong. To pronounce "les haricots" ("the green beans") properly,
      you say
      > /lez ariko/

      I am surprised this has not been contested. Words like haricot with an
      "aspirated h" are treated as if they began with a consonant: no elision, no
      liaison:
      le haricot (not l' aricot) de haricot (not d' haricot)
      le heros (not l' heros) etc
      and plural
      les Halles pronounced /le 'al)
      les haricots pronounced /le ariko/
