Pinyin question

Posted by Purrfecdizzo December 27, 2011 in the Group General Discussion.

I know that each pinyin syllable has 4 tones (sometimes a neutral one as well), but I also know that in some cases, not all four tones of a syllable are actually used in Mandarin. Is there a chart somewhere that has a list of sounds that are used and not used? Thanks.
