Thank you again for these lessons. LiLi.
I am sure you are going to say “Yes” to my question. But I just want to be sure.
In the expression ‘Wo3 hen3 xi3 huan’ would the tones became ‘Wo2 Hen2 xi3 huan’ as happens when just two third tones follow each other? If so, the rule then is that no two 3rd tones can sit next to each other.
