Quest Posted December 3, 2005 at 10:38 PM Report Share Posted December 3, 2005 at 10:38 PM Is there a rule(s)? Some 4 4 change to 4 2: 阳台42，楼盘42, but not 人缘44，行程44 Some 2 5 and 3 5 change to 2 2 and 3 2 respectively: 丑女22，靓女32 (vs. 美女55) but not 丑妇25 and 对垒35 Some 6 4 change to 6 2: 事头62，but not 事头婆644 So chaotic... Has anyone studied Cantonese tones? Also, for some reason I find it hard figuring out whether a tone is 3 or 5, if it's not on a "si" word. For example, going through the different tones of the 女 sound, I find hard to determine whether 女 itself belongs to 3 or 5. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
