Changing two consecutive 4th tones.. but not all the time!


#1

Hi everyone!

I have just watched the video about tone changes in the say it right series, the one about bu2cuo4 and yi2ci4.
But it appears that we still have to say β€œda3dian4hua4”.
So my question is: when do we have to change tones when we come across two consecutive fourth tones? How do we know when to do that?

Thanks a lot,
Chinese pod is great and helps me a lot :slight_smile:

The tone change rule only applies to;
不 bu4
δΈ€ yi1
and two third tones :slight_smile:

Hope that makes sense.
