comment When writing pin yin, should you use a question mark in sentences using “ma”?
I know they're not-- I just don't know how to make tone marks on my keyboard. With the standard international keyboard layout I can make 2 and 4, but not 1 or 3.

That's a really good tip, the "correct" part.

So is that the standard method? Comparison to other characters?

comment How is pronunciation discussed in Chinese?
Hmm, I guess I wasn't clear enough. K is clear because people learning English learn the pronunciation sound of the 26 letters and handful of other combinations, and once they have them down, that's that, and you can refer to them as a standard for pronunciation-- Like a D sound, like a C-H sound. In Chinese there is no such standard for differentiation, or so it seems.

comment Are tones sometimes glossed over?
@OlleLinge Edit whenever you want...your edit will need approval anyway, so you may as well. When you have more rep some day and no longer need approval, then maybe by then you'll figured out by experience when to edit and when to answer.
