Elio Garcia from has conducted an interview with David Peterson about the Dothraki language. It contains a lot of information about how David went about researching and constructing the backstory to base the language on.

It also provides a couple  new words and some interesting etymology.

Beginners / Where to start learning Dothraki?
« on: June 01, 2011, 10:52:03 am »
For those that have decided to get into Dothraki and are wondering where to start well here's an answer.

We will be building the Dothraki wiki into the place to go for all your learning needs.

This will be the starting point:

Right now this is mainly an index of the current grammar pages but things are added continuously. Eventually there will be more and more instructional pages that help explain with examples how things work. We still don't know more than 15% of the created words and the grammar is not fully known so things will grow slowly over time. On the other hand, this is a great time to start learning things gradually as we find everything out one bit at a time.

Dothraki Language Updates / Things not yet known.
« on: May 26, 2011, 07:17:36 pm »
This is a place to list information about grammar etc that is still unknown or unclear that we need to ask David Peterson about or figure out in some way.

-Non-nominative declensions of all pronouns.
-More about animacy of nouns.
-More about adjective comparison.
-Nominative of certain nouns. (Possible missing vowels?)
-What does -o- indicate in certain verbs?

Feel free to suggest other things and I'll add them to the list.

HBO: Game of Thrones / New clip with info about Dothraki
« on: May 22, 2011, 10:15:08 pm »
There is a new clip with info about Dothraki:

Speaking Dothraki

Can anyone get a good screenshot at the pages that David is flipping through? I think the clip is taken from HBOGO so if anyone has access to that then it might be possible to get better resolution as well.

One word I can identify is chakat which apparently means 20 which makes sense since akat means 2.

A Song of Ice and Fire / Valyrian
« on: May 20, 2011, 10:56:08 pm »
I was thinking regarding the Valyrian language. I'm sure a lot of people want there be a Valyrian conlang created for the show and right now it's anyones guess if it will ever happen. I think the only hint might be that David Peterson was asked to do a mock up of Asshaii and Skroth (the language of the White Walkers) so that is at least on indication that they are considering other languages than Dothraki as well.

What I was thinking though was that even if HBO doesn't decide to create Valyrian for the show. What's really to stop any conlanger from creating Valyrian anyway on a non-official basis? It seems like there are more fans of the show that are interested in Valyrian rather than Dothraki as well since it's seen as a more civilized and romantic culture.

Dothraki Language Updates / New Dothraki article at
« on: May 20, 2011, 05:19:28 pm »
David Peterson and Sai have been interviewed by TV Guide about the Dothraki language:

There are a few new words here for us:

choyo - joke word for someones ass.

graddakh - refure or waste. Used as a non-targeting swear word.

affesat - to make (someone) itch

moon - ablative of he, she, it. Compare with me and mae.

gorat - to charge

Dothraki Language Updates / Animate or inanimate nouns.
« on: May 17, 2011, 09:36:05 pm »
We have started assigning which nouns are animate and which are inanimate but there are still a lot of nouns where we don't know if it's animate or not. This thread will be a place to try and figure this out.

David has provided some general phonetic rules that determine animacy:

-asar, -eser, -isir, -osor

-i (diminutive)
-(s)of (augmentative)

Having removed all words that fall into any of these categories we are left with the following list:

ahesh   snow   
asavva   sky

vort   tooth   
zande   satchel, sack   
zhaqe   bass   
zhavvorsi   of the dragon   
zir   bird   

What we need to do now is find out some way to determine which of these are inanimate or animate. One way to do this is to look at example sentences. The easiest way is to find a sentence where the word is used as the object of a sentence. If the noun ends in -es or -is it will be animate otherwise it's inanimate. Also the genitive ending for words that end in a vowel is also a clue. Inanimate nouns will only have -i even after a vowel but animate nouns will instead have -si. Animate nouns also have various declensions for plurals of the ablative and allative so any word ending with a vowel that ends in -saan or soon rather than just -aan or -oon will be animate. Also any instance of the endings -(s)oa or -(s)ea will also be animate.

There is now video available from David Petersons talk at the Language Creation Conference.

Right now there is only the unedited ustream footage available but I think ultimately they will get chopped up and hosted somewhere else.

For now the talk can be found here:

The talk starts at around 11:50 into the video. The slides are hard to see so it's easier to just follow along with the slides on PDF:

Later on I'll summarize all the information that is given in the talk.

HBO: Game of Thrones / Dothraki on Thronecast
« on: May 10, 2011, 09:17:56 am »
There was a quick Dothraki lesson the latest episode of Thronecast.

While they should be commended for featuring the language I think we should also point out that they are doing more mistakes than Daenerys in there. They do a classic mistake people do with conlangs which is to simply look at the dictionary and string words together without any regard for grammar. They use nouns as if they were verbs, use verbs without conjugating etc.

Still nice to get some exposure and hopefully people get interested in finding out more.

Dothraki Language Updates / Translitterate Dothraki into Cyrillic.
« on: May 04, 2011, 02:48:16 am »
David Peterson has posted a blogpost about how he would suggest translitterating Dothraki words into the Cyrillic alphabet.

HBO: Game of Thrones / Dothraki dialogue from the TV series.
« on: May 02, 2011, 01:59:09 pm »
This thread is ment to be a collection of all dialogue from the show. Things in [brackets] are added by me when a word is left out by the actor that should have been there for the sentence to make sense gramatically or stylistically or just when making an editorial comment within a sentence. Since most of this will at least initially be based on guesses of the transcription I will put all guesses in (parenthesis) until the actual dialogue can be confirmed.

Episode 1
The first dothraki we hear is spoken by Illyrio Mopatis when Dany and Viserys are first introduced to Khal Drogo.

-Illyrio: Athchomar chomakaan, [zhey] khal vezhven. Respect to one that is respectful, great khal.

Next he says a longer sentence that starts with:

-Illyrio: Azha anhaan asshilat... The whole sentence is a translation of what he had just said in english which was:

May I present my honored guests, Viserys of house Targaryen, the third of his name, the rightful king of the Andals and the First Men. And his sister, Daenerys of house Targaryen.

During the Dothraki wedding Khal Drogo says something as well:

-Drogo: (iteo akkah) XXX Noone knows what this line is.

-Drogo: Jadi, zhey Jorah Andahli Come, Jorah the Andal.

-Jorah Mormont: Khal vezhven. Great khal.

Episode 2
In the second episode there is only one line of Dothraki. When Drogo comes in to the tent once more to have sex with Daenerys she says:

-Daenerys: Ajjalan anha zalat vitiherat yer hatif Tonight I would look upon your face. The line is not grammatical but that was done intentionally since Daenerys is a novice at this point.

Episode 3
Episode three has a lot of Dothraki. First when the khalasar rides through a willow field a random Dothraki whips a slave and says:

-Random Dothraki:  Kash qoy qoyi thira disse. Only while blood of my blood lives..

When the khalasar stops and Daenerys takes off into the willows we hear Ser Jorah say:

-Jorah Mormont: Annakhas dozgosores Stop the horde

When Rakharo has his whip around Viserys neck he says:

-Rakharo: Hash shafka zali addrivat mae, zhey Khaleesi?? Do you want him dead khaleesi?

-Rakharo: Ishish chare acharoe hash me nem ejervae nharesoon. Maybe the ear will listen if it is removed from the head.

-Irri: Khaleesi vos zalo meme nem azisa Khaleesi, does not want him harmed.

-Rakharo: Chiftik Cricket

Next we move to a camp that has been set up.

-Irri: Athjahakar pride, prowess
-Irri: Me azhasavva vezhofoon. It's a blessing from the great stallion.

-Jorah Mormont: It's a good blade for a dothrakaan (for a rider) but a man in full plate, shori tawakof (steel dress)...

-Rakharo: Dothraki vos ondeo shoris tawakofi. Dothraki don't wear steel dresses.

-Rakharo: Vroz? Slow

-Rakharo: Ave anni ezzo anhaan os lajataan. Me ezzo anhaan m'athdikar assie athzhokwazar.) My father taught me how to fight. He taught me that speed defeats size.

-Jorah Mormont: Anha ray char m'ave yeri lajakoon hakeso. I heard that your father was a famous warrior.

-Rakharo: Me dothrakhqoyoon torga Khali Bharbo. He was bloodrider to Khal Bharbo.

-Rakharo: Majin ave yeri Jorah Andahli? Hash me lajakoon akka? And your father, Jorah the Andal? He was a warrior also?

-Irri: Khaleesi zala meme adakha esinakh ajjalan. Ogi loy mawizzi. The khaleesi wants to eat something different tonight. Kill some rabbits.

-Rakharo: Vo mawizzi vekho jinne  There are no rabbits.

-Irri: Ezas loy alegri h'anhaan. Mori allayafi mae, jin alegra. Find some ducks for me. She likes ducks.

-Rakharo: Hash yer ray tih loy alegra zhey vikeesi? Vo mawizzi, vo alegri. Hash tihi vekhi she nhare yeroon? Hash tih? Have you seen any ducks, woman? No rabbits, no ducks. Do you have eyes in your head? Do you? The final added expression "Hash tih?" does not make sense. It was added by the production in the belief that it means "Do you?". It instead means something like "Do eyes?"

-Irri: Majin jano. Anha ray tih san jani.Dogs then. I have seen many dogs.

-Rakharo Azhasavva vezhofoon A blessing from the great stallion.

Later Dany and Drogo are in bed talking:

-Daenerys: Me rakh. It's a boy.

-Drogo: Kifinosi yer nesi? How do you know?

-Daenerys: Anha sekke nesa. I very knows. This is another deliberate mistake.

Episode 6

After a couple episodes without any Dothraki dialogue there is again lots in episode 6.

First we have the scene with the horse heart ceremony.

-Crowd: Rakh! Rakh! Rakh haj! A boy! A boy! A strong boy!

-Crone: Khalakka dothrae! The prince rides.

The crone also says: I've heard the thunder of his hoofs. Swift as the win he rides. His enemies will cower before him. And their wives will weap tears of blood. This is very hard to make out however. Hopefully David might be able to help out with this.

-Crone: Vezh fin saja rhaesheseres! The stallion that mounts the world!

-Daenerys: Khalakka dothrae mr'anha A prince rides inside me. There is something fishy about Emilias line read but this is what she is suppose to be saying.

-Daenerys: Ma me nem ahakee ma Rhaego! And he shall be called Rhaego.

Then later at the feast:

-Qotho: Khal rhae mhar. Me ifa. The sore-foot king. He walks.

-Drogo: Nevakhi vekha ha maan. There is a place for you. Lit. A sitting-spot exists for him.

-Irri: Ifak asta meme zala firikhnharen, meme zala rek meme nem jer ki mae…che me vesazhae khaleesies The foreigner says that he wants a crown, that he wants that which was traded to him...or he will take back the khaleesi.

-Irri: Me asta meme vos vesazhao khalakkaes. Me asta meme azirissee khalakkaes khaleesisoon ma vannevae mae shafkea. He says that he will not take back the prince. He says that he will cut the prince out of the khaleesi and leave him for you.

-Drogo: Anha vazhak maan rek me zala. I will give to him what he wants.

-Drogo: Anha vazhak maan firikhnharen hoshora ma mahrazhi aqovi affin mori atihi mae. I will give to him a golden crown and men will tremble when they will see it.

-Drogo: Qora mae! Seize him!

-Drogo: Ammeni haz jolin! Empty that pot.

Episode 7

-Drogo: Vezh fin saja rhaesheseres vo zigereo adoroon shiqethi. The stallion that mounts the world has no need for iron chairs.

-Daenerys: K'asi assikhqoyisiri vezh adothrae nakhaan rhaesheseri. According to the prophecy the stallion will ride to the ends of the world.

-Drogo: Sorfosor nakha she Havazzhifi Kazga. Vo hrazef laz yoma evethiz. The earth ends at The Black Salt Sea. No horse can cross the poison water.

-Daenerys: Sorfosor nakho vosecchi [she havazh]. Sani sorfi vekha yomme [havash]. Sorfo athyolari anni. The Earth never ends [at the sea]. There are many dirts across [the sea]. The dirts of my birth.

-Drogo: Vo sorfo. Rhaeshi. Not dirt. Lands

-Daenerys:Rhaeshi, sek. Lands, yes.

-Daenerys: Dalen rhaggat eveth ma ale [vekhi she Vaes Seris]: [Hrazef] ido fini ovethi yomme [havazh].  There are thousands of ships [in the free cities]. Wooden [horses] that fly across [the sea.]

-Drogo: Kisha vastoki vos alikh hrazefi ido m'adori shiqethi Let's speak no more about wooden horses or iron chairs.

-Daenerys: Me vos ador. It's not a chair. It''s...throne.

-Drogo: Throne?

-Daenerys: Ador finaan khal nevasoe...che khaleesi. A chair for a king to sit upon...or a queen.

-Drogo: Khal vos zigereo adoroon anevasoe maan. Me zigeree sojasoon disse. A khal doesn't need a chair to sit on. He only needs a steed.

-Wine Merchant: Virzetha gizikhven! Mra qora! Mra qora! Sweet reds. I have it. I have it.

-Wine Merchant: Virzetha gizikhven! Virzetha gizikhven vekha m'anhoon, Lysoon, Volantisoon, ma Halahisiroon. Sweet reds! I have sweet reds from Lys, Volantis and the Arbor.

-Wine Merchant: Sovikh Tirosh! Jelavena Andahloa. Mra qora! Mra qora! Tyroshi pear brandy. Andhalish sours! I have them! I have them!

-Wine Merchant: Lekhi ha khaleesisaan? M'anhoon vekha virzethi gizkhvena Dornoon, zhey erinak A taste for the khaleesi? I have a sweet red from Dorne, my lady.

-Wine Merchant: At lekhi ma shafka ahakee yal hakesoon anni. One taste and you'll name your first child after me.

-Jorah: Rakharo, azzohi haz khogare. Rakharo, put down that cask.

Later we have Drogos speech:

-Drogo: Zhey jalan atthirari anni. Hash azisi? Moon of my live. Are you hurt?

-Drogo: Jora Andahli, okki zhille hrazef fin allayafa shafka drogikhoon anni. Me shafki. Jorah the Andal, [I heard what you did] choose any horse you wish [from my herd]. It's yours.

-Drogo: Anha asshilak jin azh shafkea haji rekoon et shafka. I make this gift to you for what you did.

-Drogo: Ma rizhaan anni, vezh fin asaja rhaesheseres,  maan anha valloshak azh akka. And to my son, the stallion who will mount the world, I will also pledge a gift.

-Drogo: Maan anha vazhak jin ador shiqethi finaan neva ave maisi mae. I will give him the iron chair that his mothers father sat upon.

-Drogo: Anha vazhak maan Rhaeshis Andahli. Anha, zhey Drogo, atak jin. I will give The Lands of the Andals. I, Drogo, will do this.

-Drogo: Anha vidrik khalasares anni jim, finaan nakhoe rhaesheser, majin adothrak hrazef ido yomme Havazzhifi Kazga ven et vo khal avvos.I will take my khalasar west to where the world ends and ride wooden horses across the black salt sea as no khal has done before.

-Drogo: Anha vaddrivak mahrazhis fini ondee khogar shiqethi ma vohharak okrenegwin mori. I will kill the men in iron suits and tear down their stone houses.

-Drogo: Anha aqorisok chiories mori, vazzafrok yal mori, ma afichak vojjor samva Vaesaan Dothrak. I will rape their women, take their children as slaves and bring their broken gods back to Vaes Dothrak.

-Drogo: Ki jini anha astak asqoy, anha, Drogo ki Bharbosi. This i vow Drogo son of Bharbo.

-Drogo: Ki jini anha astak asqoy hatif Maisi Krazaaji kash shieraki vitihiri asavvasoon. Asavvasoon! Asavvasoon! I swear before the mother of mountains as the stars look down in witness. As the stars look down in witness.

Episode 8

Rakharo: Haesh rakhi davrae zafraan. Khal Drogo vazhoe mora azzafrokea, majin azzafroki vazhi kishaan ma hoshor ma tasokh ma tawakof. Lamb men make good salves. Khal Drogo will make a gift of them to the slavers, and the slavers will give us gold and silk and steel.

Rakharo: Me vafik, zhey khaleesi. Dothraki chomoe mae. Hash athlaqar mae zireyesee khaleesies hash anha afichak shafkea lekh moon.) She's a lamb girl, Khaleesi. The riders do her honor. If her wailing offends the Khaleesi, I will bring you her tongue.

Qotho: Hash hrazef gova vaf? Does the horse mate with the lamb?
