Hi Ong
One of the things you sent me via email, I figured out that there were 8 tones in Hainanese just by looking at numbers 1-10 and other words. But, I found a video on YouTube that explained there are 6 tones in Hainanese.. Are they just different varieties of Hainanese or what?

Sorry I can't help. You undoubtedly have tried Google. There's very little out there for learning Hainanese, as far as I can tell.

Hainanese

Hi
I'd like to get information on Hainanese language learning. There's hardly any on the net on Hainanese. Im a Philippine-Hokkien and interested in some of the other Chinese tongues such as Hainanese. Can anyone show me some info on the Hainanese tones/tonal system, for example?
Thanks
