comment “Thank you” in Tibetan, Cantonese, and Mandarin
I can't comment on Tibetan, but the Cantonese expression literally means "many thanks" (多謝, IPA: /tɔː˥ t͡sɛː˨/) while the Mandarin expression is "thanks-thanks" (謝謝, IPA: /ɕi̯ɛ˥˩ ɕi̯ɛ˥˩/). The second syllable of the Cantonese expression is cognate to the duplicated syllables of the Mandarin expression.

comment 乐 Le and Yue: When did they diverge?
Overall a good answer, but a few corrections that would affect your timeline of events slightly: 唐韵 was written in 732 AD, not BC. Also, most Sino-Japanese vocabulary was borrowed was borrowed between the 5th and 9th centuries, not between 3rd and 5th. According to The Languages of Japan (Shibatani 1990): "a systematic introduction of the Chinese language occurred around A.D. 400, when Korean scholars brought Chinese books to Japan."
