So there is this difference between pure northern mandarin and “normal” mandarin. In Beijing and some other places they speak the pure mandarin (I dont mean beijing hua) with all the 5th tones but in my experience, in the rest of China they dont use the 5th tone that much. Like 耽搁 is supposed to be dan1ge5 but most people say dan1ge2 and 栅栏 is supposed to be zha4lan5 but most people say zha4lan2 etc.
This might sound weird but I actually prefer to study the “wrong” mandarin because it helps me remember what tones those characters have in other words. I tried changing some tones and the normal skritter.com dont even let me do it. Legacy skritter seems to have the option but once I’ve changed the tones and pressed “save”, it reverts back to the “correct” version.
How do I edit the tones to the way I want them?
