Tones, meaning?

Posted by samknutsson October 21, 2012 in the Group General Discussion.

Do the tones in pinyin have any meaning?

In the audiolession you guys were joking around about the tones a lot, like the fourth tone (dà) sounding mad or even a bit hostile.

Do the tones actually have any meaning? Do they confer any certain emotion to the syllable?
