Pronunciation of 豁出去 huo1 or huo4

Hi ChinesePod team, my question is this:
Pronunciation of 豁出去 huo1 or huo4, is 1st tone or 4th tone? I quite confuse on it.

Hi Eddie,

豁出去 is actually 1st tone [huōchuqù]. But if you look into the dictionary, you would find that 豁 has several pronunciations, and one of them is 4th tone. That’s why you might hear some people say [huòchuqù]. Although people understand both pronunciations, we still need to keep this in mind: 1st tone is the correct one.

Thank you Betty. You make me clear right now. Thanks for help!!!
