tone marks for phrase "nali you"

Posted by meir May 2, 2010 in the Group General Discussion.

When asking about where something is (directions), my book , which never uses tone marks has it as 那里 有.
When I looked up 那里 on nciku it lists it as both
nǎli and nàli. Which tones for nali would be the correct ones in this case (3rd tone or 4th tone)? Is 有 3rd tone (yǒu) like the normal case of the verb to have?

the same goes for saying "over there" listed as
在 那里. I don't know what tones to use for "nali" in that case either : ((
