I'm surprised Thai has a few the same as Mandarin. I expected Vietnamese to share more with Chinese, as well as Korean. The word for '3' seems fairly common among the major languages even across families.

It's not an Asian language but check out how similar Samoan is to Cebuano (Filipino language)

Cebuano - Samoan
usa - tasi
duha - lua
tulo - tolu
upat - fa
lima - lima
unom - ono
pito - fitu
walo - valu
siyam - iva
napulo - sefulu

Interesting. I know Samoan is Austronesian, but it's Polynesian, I didn't think they were all that close.

yeah linguists say that Austronesian is one of the more close-knit language families. It's weird because Filipino numbers look as close to Samoan numbers as they do to Bahasa Indonesian/Malaysian and Javanese

I wonder how close Malagasy is to the language of Easter Island.

Vietnamese seem to close to Chinese just only culturally. By the way when it comes to language or genetic comparison Thai seem to share a lot with Chinese for some reason.

They are discussing about Thai or Vietnamese who is closer to Chinese in this forum.

Who is genetically closer to Chinese? Thai/Tai/Dai or Viet/Kinh? - Chinese Ethnic Groups and Peoples - China History Forum, Chinese History Forum

Malagasy shares linguistic similarities with a Bornean language (from the Barito region, Indonesian Borneo).
