There weren't language that close to Filipino languages being spoken in China 1,000 years ago. Thats just ridiculous. If anything, the language would be kinda close to Taiwanese Aborigine languages because those people would have been the left over Austronesian that didnt go to Taiwan, but instead, your Karaya people speak languages closely related to other Filipino languages.

One might also be able to find similarities with the southern Sinitic languages in Karaya too.

theoretically, but Karaya is in the Austronesian language family, in the Philippine branch. If they came to the Philippines just 1,000 years ago and supposedly remained isolated, then they would have some similarities with wherever in China they came from, not similarities to every other Filipino language.

Kinaray-a language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Yes it seems quite deeply a Philippine language. No mention of such a recent Chinese origin.

Exactly, it's not. If supposedly the Karayas came from the Austronesians who were left over in Southern China, then their language should be somewhat more related to Taiwanese Aborigine language than it is to Filipino languages, but it's not.

Maybe we all came from Mars. For you it's anything that makes you more like an East Asian. It doesnt even matter how ridiculous the theory is or if the theory even exists, if it makes you feel more East Asian, you'll believe it.

Or the leftover karayas could have been mixed into and assimilated with the han
