'New concepts in Nyangumarda: some data on linguistic acculturation', pp.1-6 in Anthropological Linguistics, Vol.2, no.1.
Discusses three ways in which the language has adapted to new concepts .

The second is by extension of meanings of existing words. The third is by using English 'loanwords'. In addition there is borrowing from neighbouring languages and onomatopoeia, both ways of expressing new concepts.
