Esperanto's changes since inception

Greetings all.

A colleague of mine in the department is interested in studying
how Esperanto has developed into a naturalistic language over the
century or so of its use. She wants to know questions like:  how
has the morphosyntax, derivational morphology and lexicon of the
language changed from Zamenhof's original conception? Does anyone
know of any good (=nonpartisan, nonproselytizing) resources on this
fact?  (Obviously, since the politics of auxlanging is forbidden
from this list, I want to avoid that angle of it if at all possible.)
