If your people remained isolated then they'd be speaking some proto form of Austronesian because they came staight from the source of Austronesians, Southern China. But instead, they speak a Malayo-Polynesian language in the Philippine branch
what is this malayao-polynesian mumbo jumbo crap....I dont classify our languages under European terms...sorry

Linguists terms. You know, people who study languages for a living. You used the term 'Austronesian' Well if you knew anything about Austronesians then you'd know that Malayo-Polynesian is a subset. Dont use terms you dont know about

still, you have more expertise on such over someone who is a known troll who doesnt even bother to do any research or present actual proofs of his allegations.

This is proposed language family, connecting Sino-Tibetan, Austronesian, Tai–Kadai. All it's doing is taking a step back from Taiwan and looking at Southern China. If Kinirayas came from Southern China 1,000 years ago then they should speak a similar language to Tai-Kadai because those are supposedly the languages that were left on the Mainland when other Southern Chinese moved to Taiwan and became Austronesians. I'm sure you Karayas and Thais can have lengthy conversations...

if you despise western classification and mentality, then why do you keep quoting wikipedia as proofs? why not prove it yourself by doing what smtchll asked of you?
