Byrd, Steven (2005). Calunga, an Afro-Brazilian speech of the Triângulo Mineiro: its grammar and history. Department of Spanish and Portuguese, University of Texas at Austin (PhD thesis).

Notes : “Calunga is an Afro-Brazilian ‘secret language’ spoken mainly in and around Patrocínio, a rural city located in the region of the Triângulo Mineiro in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais ... Even though its origins and evolution is unclear, Calunga speech has shifted grammatically in the direction of the regional variety of Brazilian Portuguese Vernacular ... Its current lexicon, however, points to three possible Bantu languages from the Congo/Angola region of West Africa: Kimbundu, Umbundu, and Kikongo” (quoted from LinguistList 17-612, 2006).
