When I first learned the numbers in Mandarin, I always thought that 'yi', the number 1, was first tone.
Since then I've also seen it with second and third tones - is it purely to make it sound nicer (like bu changes from 2 to 4), or do you give 'yi' a different tone for different meanings?
Thanks to anyone who can help me out on this one!
