Another Chinese Question.

Chinese languages are tonal if I’m not mistaken, which means that the sense or definition of a word varies according to the intonation with which it’s expressed. So what do they do about songs, where the intonation is constrained by a melody?

I haven't a clue how to recognise Chinese New Year, which is... erm... now. Nobody from China has invited me to a party. I should have got some bean sprouts from Sainsbury's, shouldn't I?
