I'm sure you Karayas and Thais can have lengthy conversations...
just as much as a karaya having convos with a tagalog.....karaya in itself is a language on its own...the closest thing to it is illongo

Oh yeah, it's just as hard for Kinarayas to understand Tagalog as it is for them to understand Thai. It is equally distant from both languages

Kinaraya-------Tagalog------- Thai
Isara----------Isa------------Nueng
Darwa---------Dalawa---------Song
Tatlo----------Tatlo-----------Sam
Apat-----------Apat-----------Si
Lima-----------Lima-----------Ha
Anem-----------Anim----------Hok
Pito-------------Pito-----------Chet
Walo------------Walo---------Paet
Siyam-----------Siyam--------Kao
Pulu------------Sampuh-------Sip

it's because those classifications have been studied for so long. if you want to disprove anything or shed some new light, do some studies or research of your own. invest some of your american dollars and time to show that you're some heavyweight on such things and not just make allegations without any proof or research

No, you said "it's just as hard for Kinarayas to understand Tagalog as it is for them to understand Thai." One of the many idiotic statements you've made. And whats the point of posting Malay? That just proves that it's clearly an Austronesian language but more distant from Tagalog and Karaya.

You can find East Asian looking people all over the Philippines. They're mixed in with populations that have various phenotypes. East Asian is just one of those phenotypes.

lol just because there are a few similarities in counting means you can carry a conversation with a karaya now...oh please....

there is no distance like you said,....its just a made up western classification that divides austronesian languages by country.....tagalog is just as foreign to a karaya as malay is

no you dont....some areas are devoid of EA looking people amongst the general population

Did i ever say that Tagalogs & Karayas can carry a conversations? No I didnt. They are separate languages. But you said that it's just as hard for a Karaya to understand Tagalog as it is for them to understand Thai. That's simply idiotic. It's like saying that an English speaker can understand as much Chinese as French

No regions are devoid of EA looking people. Maybe tiny isolated towns, like Negrito villages, but not regions

Guess who's parents are from Munoz Nueva Ecija?
