tones--they're not that obvious to non-speakers even in Cantonese, which is
the more heavily tonal of the two major dialects.<

And of course, Chinese speakers don't use tones on every single word like
written pinyin.

But, I'm sure it was Korean because Korea *was just mentioned* in that section
of volume II. I doubt it was coincidental.
