Comments on family membership

Jiamao [jio] has recently been suggested as a language isolate with heavy Hlai overlay (Norquest, Peter K. 2007). However, if the suggestion of massive borrowing from Hlai into Jiamao is in fact correct, so little residual vocabulary remains that it appears insufficient for positing a new language isolate. Therefore Jiamao is counted as a Hlai, and thus Tai-Kadai, language.
