Chavicano, spoken in Zambonga, Mindanao, Philippines:

1. uno
2. dos
3. tres
4. cuatro
5. cinco
6. seis
7. siete
8. ocho
9. nueve
10. dies

Chavicano is a corrupt version of the Spanish that was brought by immigrating Mexican laborers in Spanish colonial times, 17th century. My mother in law understands me if I speak Spanish slowly. She speaks no English, and very little Tagalog.

Numbers, by the way, are rarely heard in any Fililpino language. English numbers are used by all speakers, in virtually all contexts. Even things like calendar dates land time of day.

Filipinos, Indonesians, Malaysians, Polynesians and Madagascar can all trace their origins in Taiwan, hence the similarities. the language/dialect is called Austronesian

Interesting.

. I have always thought this was due to the Pilipinas/Filipinas as being part of the Spanish realm.

. But numbers spoken in spanish are understood and used, correct?

All the numbers that you have listed for Sino-Korean is WRONGLY pronounced.

6 is "Yook" not "yok"

7 is "Chil or Cheel" not chat. (LOL...I had to laugh at this)

8 is "Pahl" not 'paet.'

9 is "Goo / Gu" not gaooooo.

10 is "sheep/ship" like in a ship boat but with a heavy "ee" sound. Not "sip" as in a sip of water. Wrong wrong wrong!!

Spanish numbers are understood in the Philippines, but generally not used by young city folks anymore. They're still in use in the markets and where bargaining takes place, but even there, one can do with just English numbers. Saying numbers over 100 in Spanish can sound archaic to Filipino ears, although they're still generally understood.
