Beginners / My questions about some details
« Last post by Boris on February 03, 2019, 11:51:12 am »
Hi, i'm japanese language teacher from UA, i fell in love with dothraki and it hurts that some parts of language are unfinished (month, weekdays, etc.)

I have a couple questions, first - where we can actually use the infinitive form of the verb in cnversation?

Second - am i translating this sentences with nominalisation right?

"tomorrow i'll earn to swim" - silokh anesak athzerqozar

"i like dancing" - anha zhilak athezhirar

"You know nothing (John Snow!)" - "Yer vo nesi vosi"

"Everyday (i) fighting drgons" ei asshekh lajak javorsaes

"They were fighting with honour" mori lajish ki chomokhi

Thanks

I indeed get a time out error now. Last month, the error was "too many redirects". In any case, I have been unable to consult the wiki for a very long time now :-(

General Discussion / PhD Thesis About Constructed Languages
« Last post by colourless_green_wug on December 16, 2018, 11:00:55 am »
Dear language enthusiasts

I’m writing my PhD thesis about constructed languages and their speech communities. I want to find out who the people behind the languages are. I have devised a questionnaire to gather basic information. This will be completed by a second questionnaire and in-depth interviews.

I’d really appreciate your help. So, if you have 5 to 15 minutes, please follow the link below and fill in the questionnaire.

Here is the link: https://conlangsstepone.limequery.com/493868?lang=en

If you have any questions or concerns, just comment below.

Thank you so much!

Best regards,

Lisa

Announcements / Problems with the wiki

Some of you may have noticed that the wiki has suddenly become very slow responding. The reason for this problem is still unknown, and the good folks at LearnNavi have been looking into it as well. We have come to the conclusion that there is some sort of low-level problem with the wiki that is best fixed with a software update. Sometime over the weekend of December 1st/2nd, I am going to try and upgrade the wiki. This may be simple; it may be very complicated. Stay tuned for future information about this upgrade. Also feel free to ask questions here, or PM me.

M'athchomaroon/Rystas!

Here's a third reminder for anyone who may still be lurking on this forum:

We're on Discord now!  We have two very active sister-servers for High Valyrian and Dothraki, and these are going to be the places where you will find the most active members of the community talking with each other 24/7! If that sounds fun to you then click the link for the server you're most interested in talking in!

Here's the link to the VALYRIAN server: https://discord.gg/PmRuNne

Here's the link to the DOTHRAKI server: https://discord.gg/punTtWF

It’s July 8th, 2018. Exactly two days since my last post. I considered waiting till a week or so had passed before posting an update and decided against it. Chances are I’m just going to post whenever I feel like it. Now, let’s get to the goodies. In my last post I talked about my lack of confidence with my pronunciation. While I still think my pronunciation may not be 100% correct I got some help from Khal_Qana (Kirimvose) who taught me about the IPA and helped me with how the letter “y” is pronounced in HV. I intend to practice my pronunciation with other people and perfect it when David Peterson adds the audio to the Duolingo course. Also in my last post was all the words I had learned so far. Which was not a small amount. But learning a language is more than just remembering which word means what. It’s also learning how those words go together and the rules behind how declensions work. As of now I have learned the basic structure of a sentence. HV is an S.O.V. language. Meaning that if you structured an English sentence the way you would a HV sentence it would be like this: “The boy happy is”. Which is super easy to grasp since HV has no articles. Otherwise constructing a sentence might be fairly difficult. After the sentence structure I learned about grammatical case. For now I only know the nominative and accusative cases. Nominative showing the word is the subject of the sentence like the word “Taoba”, and accusative showing the object of the sentence such as the word “azanti”. Taking these two words and combining them with a verb like “rijas” in the order of “Taoba azanti rijas” constructs a grammatically correct sentence meaning “The boy praises the knight” in English. There is more to how these grammatical cases work that I don’t yet know but will find out with the help of the wiki and Duolingo. There seems to be a pattern to how the declension conjugate words based on gender, which is something I have yet to really learn about. Until I do I’ll probably make a few mistakes in my conjugation of words. If you catch me making one of those mistakes feel free to correct me and explain why I was wrong. Well that’s it for today’s update. Until next time kirimvose, geros ilas se syyz bantis! (Thank you, farewell and goodnight!)
