Question

蚂蚁 – ma ( 第三声) yi (也是第三声), 所以 朗读时, ‘蚂’ 就变为第二声。
我的问题是, 为什么不干脆把蚂蚁变成 第二和第三声好了, 何苦为难大家去死记。
:) 老师, 有什么方法可以知道是 ( 第二和第三声) 还是 ( 第三和题三声)?
难道真的要死记吗?

谢谢老师。

As far as I know, if the 2 characters are 第三声, the one before is to be read as 第二. When write down pin yin, they want the original sound.

Thanks bungii. But my son will pronounce the word 蚂蚁 when he does the han yu pin yin questions. To him, it is second and third sound. He also knows tt when writing pin yin, they want the original sound. But the problem is he does not know the original sound of 蚂 is the third sound. I would not know too unless I have come across such a question.

Anyone with a list of such words. Can share? Thank you.

Should have a lot. One most commonly used is the character不. Like 不对, or 不要, since both in 第四声, then 不 read as 第二.

If you are talking about the less known…anyone?? :sweat:

若为考试, 当然得死记, 不过考试的词语有个范围, 其实反倒成了送分题。
我从学生时代至今, 都是因为喜欢华文而学华文, 从没埋怨华文很难学, 要死背很多东西。
我甚至去背考试不会出的文言文, 唐诗宋诗, 去看一本又一本的武侠小说, 科幻小说, 爱情小说, 幸好当年父母没有阻止我读这些考试不会出的题目, 否则我今天就成不了树老师了。 :cool:

谢谢老师。:)
我很明白学习华文不应该只为了应付考试。只是觉得有点可惜,儿子 明明知道蚂蚁阅读时是 第二和第三声, 但却在这道’蚂蚁’汉语拼音的题目失去宝贵的两分。
