The article 'Theory on dialect accommodation' (Teori Akomodasi dalam Penelitian Dialektologi) by Ni Made Dhanawaty (Udayana University, 2004) dicusses the linguistic accommodation between transmigrant languages, amongst which Nusa Penida dialect speakers and their fellow-cohabitants in Banjar Lampung, Sumatra. The dialect of Nusa Penida is classified as an archaic and rather coarse Bali Aga dialect, and as such it is found to adapt rapidly to other dialects and languages, amongst others (Tabanan) Balinese and Javanese by fellow transmigrants. English translation forthcoming.
