I'm sorry, I don't catalogue sources very well like some people do.  I 
usually can just remember pretty well when we learned new words, but been 
very busy last week.  I just grabbed some examples out of my head.  The 
meaning of magh (I may be confused with 'agh or 'ang) has been expanded on 
since it was first introduced.  bol and chel I'm pretty sure were expanded 
in KGT but it might have been earlier,  Someone gave me a gift with a pun 
on the new meaning of bol back in Las Vegas, was that pre-KGT?  I looked up 
ruQ, and I see I meant raQ.  raQ used to just mean camp, but now it takes 
on the old meaning of ruQ, with the additional meaning 
"handle."  jabbI'IDghom vIlaDchu'be'mo' 'a qaStaHvIS wa'maH DIS Hol

lot of new meanings added to existing words like tlhob and nIS.  This 
sounds pretty bad.  qamaw 'e' vIHechbe', maqIHbejDI' majatlhjaj.  Sach Hol
