The pronunciation is similar to “knee how,” but notice that there are also markings above some of the vowels. This let’s you know the tone to use when speaking the words in Chinese. The tone marking you see above is known as the third tone or the “falling and rising tone.” That is because your voice must fall and rise in pitch in order to say the tone correctly.
