Beginners / Sentences
« on: June 04, 2013, 04:58:48 am »
Now with the summer holidays, I've got enough time to focus completely on Dothraki.
So today I made some example sentences, and tried to translate them, and I'd really appreciate if someone took a look and corrected me  :)

  • I kill the man.
    Anha addrivak mahrazhes.
  • I am eating.
    Anha adakhat.
  • You introduced me.
    Yer asshi anna.
  • My head hurts.
    Nhare anni annitiha.
  • The dragon is eating them.
    Zhavvorsa adakha mora.
  • Why did you kill him?
    Kirekhdirgi yer addriv mae?
  • She is a great rider.
    Me sajak vezhveni.
  • Your horse stinks like a dirty pig.
    Hrazef yeri achra ven qifo sorfi.
  • Bring me my wife's horse!
    Fichi hrazef chiorikemi anni anhasaan!
  • Three children died last night.
    Sen yalli drivi jalan oskikhi.
  • We will attack at dawn.
    Kisha alajaki vi aenaan. (Kinda..  ::))

Okay so, sorry to keep being a pain haha but how would you use either way of saying it? Mayes and Mai? I think I understand it but not completely sure.

No no no, keep asking!  ;D

Mai zharvvorsi is when the mother of dragons is the subject of a sentence, aka the one doing something.
"The Mother of Dragons freed the slaves" or "The Mother of Dragons ate a whole horse heart."

And, Mayes Zhavvorsi is when the mother of dragons is accusative form and the object of a sentence,
aka the one something is being done to.
As in: "I see the Mother of Dragons." or "I hate the Mother of Dragons."

I hope that explains it?  :)

Actually, the -i is for the genitive:

For inanimate nouns the genitive case is formed by adding the suffix /-i/ to the stem of the noun. [...] Plural and singular do not differ in genitive case.
(the wiki always explains it better >__<)

I did a little research  ;D

And come to think of it, I do remember this in Dothraki. We see a truly irregular word in mayes, the accusative of mai, which means “mother”.
Also, as the dictionary says
zhavvorsa: DP ni. dragon (alternate pronunciation of zhavorsa)

So, Mayes Zhavvorsi is mother of dragons in accusative form, and Mai Zhavvorsi/Zhavorsi is in it's nominative form.  :)

As a beginner, I'm gonna guess..

Mai zhavorsi?

Someone'll have to verify it though  ::)

I don't wear this Na'vi shirt all the time, but I have about six of them that I wear frequently in rotation, to make them last a long time.
A shirt with some Dothraki would be fun, too. I have thought about making a sirt that just says 'Me Nem Nesa' in large letters.

Even if you live halfway around the globe, you can jpin us for our IRC chat every Monday evening, 7 PM Pacific time. You can find an IRC client you can use on the Dothraki website, or download your own client (much better!).

Oh, I'd love a shirt like that!

I'll definitely join in for the chat next time  :)

Wow! Looks like you had a great time!
If I only did not live on the other side of the globe  ;)

Also, you should wear your Na'vi shirt at all times!  ::)

Nice to see you again by the way. You should stop by the chat and say hello to David some time. Though it's in the middle of the night for you as it is for me. The chats are on tuesday mornings at 4am CET. Though I'm not sure David was gonna make it this coming chat since he is at a convention in Seattle currently.

It's nice to be back! I took a break from both Dothraki and Na'vi for a while, but now I'm back on track.
I'll probably stop by the chat  :)
