French liaison question: il n'est plus un squelette. "plus un" -- liaison, yes or no?

Would you pronounce the s at the end of plus or not?

    No, there is not.

    In your example, there is no liaison because "plus" is employed with a negation word ("n' / ne").

    Il n'est plus un squelette. > He is not a skeleton anymore./He is no longer a skeleton. NO LIAISON.

    However, if there was no negation, there would be a liaison.
