Doubt it Samoan is way different to Tongan. Samoan is almost the same as Tokelauan

Funny. Because when PK is slandering you remain quiet. But any Samoan does it you start speaking up don't you?

Samoan is similar to Tuvaluan, Tokelauan, and maybe even Futuna.

Tongan is spoken in Fiji and Uvea and it's similar to Niuean and Maori. Maori is more recognizable to the Tongan language than is Samoan.

But I think it's easier for a Tongan to understand Samoan than a Samoan to understand Tongan. Tongan is a bit more complex...

When I say Tongan, I mean, the everyday Commoner Tongan language. LOL

The Samoan language is very much like the english language. There are verbs,comas,adverbs,nouns,pron ouns,propper nouns,homonyms,synonyms,adject ives,full stops,pre-fixes,suffixes,hyphe ns,vowels,consonants etc.

To learn the language you must first learn the alphabet and sounds. The Samoan alphabet below and the sounds.

A E I O U F G L M N P S T V H K R.

A=ah
E=eh
I=e
O=awe
U=oo
F=far
G=ga the G will sound like the last G sound in the word Gang.
L=la
M=mor
N=noo
P=p
S=sa
T=t
V=v
H=ha
K=car
R=raw

Fale=house. Pronunced as far-le.
There are many words in the Samoan language it is very complicated if you do not know the P which is(ABC)as is in the english language.

You know what Increase, STFU. You seem to think i'm against Samoans or something. I'm not taking PK's side but this Thread he made had no ignorance. This has nothing to do with me Siding with Samoan or Tongan. And i say something when Slobmoanz say some stupid shit about my race. Same goes for Donganz.

The numbers from one to ten is as follows:

1=Tasi
2=Lua
3=Tolu
4=fa/far
5=lima
6=ono
7=fitu
8=valu
9=iva
10=sefulu

The double digit numbers will have SEFULU as the pre-fix eg.

11=sefulu Tasi
12=sefulu lua
13=sefulu Tolu

When you reach the number 20 SEFULU will no longer be the pre-fix. The pre-fix will change to the number 2 followed by SEFULU eg.

20=Lua sefulu
21=Lua sefulu tassi or Lua sefulu ma le tasi.

This will continue on till you reach 30 which you will then apply the same rule as you did with the number 20.eg 30=Tolu sefulu,31=Tolu sefulu ma le tasi.

You stop when you hit 100 because 100=SELAU.
Therefore you will have to use SELAU as pre-fix followed by SEFULU and the next number.

100=Selau
101=Selau sefulu tasi/Selau sefulu ma le tasi.
Changes again when you reach 200.

200=Lua selau
201=Lua selau ma le tasi
202=Lua selau ma le lua
