"Southern Min" refers to a language family spoken in Fujian and nearby areas. In common parlance, it usually refers to Hokkiexn-oe. Amoy and Taiwanese are both combinations of Zoanciw-oe and Ciangciw-oe. The language family also includes Teochew, which has limited mutual intelligibility with Amoy.
Banlaam can trace its roots through the Tang Dynasty. Because of the widespread influence of the Tang culture during the great Tang dynasty, we find today still many Banlaam-style pronunciations of words shared by Vietnamese, Korean, and Japanese languages.
