    You don't need to update your question with more questions of the same type. Just paste the characters into an online dictionary and it will tell you if the tones are the same.

  • imrek’s answer here (chinese.stackexchange.com/questions/14596/…) reveals only 1522 different pinyin syllables (tones considered). The average educated Chinese person knows around 8000 characters. By the pigeonhole principle, words that share pinyin syllables with the same tone must happen.

  • Olle Linge Some dictionary makes/contains mistakes, or printing errors. It pays to ask, or confirm with, people that are knowledgeable on the questions for free, as the OP did.
