Other comments: The ancestors of Huihui people immigrated to Hainan Island from central Vietnam about eight hundreds years ago. Under the strong influences from neighboring tonal Chinese dialects, Huihui has developed tones and eventually became a monosyllabic and tonal Austronesian language. There are two forms for numbers 'one', sa³³ is used for serial counting and ta¹¹ is used with hundreds and thousands and before qualifiers.
