Infographic: Tone Changes

Tone change is a very confusing subject, which is why as soon as I saw Karen from Vividchinese release her tone change infographic, I knew I had to do a video on it.

不,一,and double third tones are not all there is in the world of tone change, but majority of the time when we run into a tone change, it will be one of the three.

Note that tone change is not the same as characters with multiple pronunciations by definition. Tone change is a change in a character’s tone depending on its placement in a sentence, with zero impact to the meaning of the character.
