Thank you for your help! :)

Looks like we have the word "anxious" now from David Peterson's keynotes/presentation in Reno: "• Phrasal Constructions
❖gango awazat “to feel anxious/excited”"

Two questions on:
"I dream of you, my sun and stars." would be Anha thirak athiraride yeri, shekh ma shieraki anni.

1. Isn't "yeri" plural? So would it be "yera"?
2. Would it be "zhey" shekh ma shieraki anni? Or is the "zhey" needed and if not when it would it be used?

Hrakkar, Thank you so much for the warm welcome!  :) I can be a bit shy to get involved so it is very cool of you.

I wasn't in Reno, but so would have loved to have been there and to have attend David Peterson's workshops. My roommate went with his friend and his girlfriend almost went, but I wasn't able to. Sadly, my roomie isn't into Dothraki so didn't attend any of Mr. Peterson's presentations, though he did bring me back a Targaryan button. The third talk you mention sounds awesome. I love languages in general, as they tend to define how people or cultures view the world and by learning new ones, you can see things in a different way. How wonderful is that?!

Thank you for your encouragement! :) Slow can be good, as it allows things to sink in. Hopefully, I can apply some of what I know about teaching language (I have a CELTA for teaching English to foreign language users), to learning Dothraki. :)

One the topic of phrases. (Hope I posted this in the right place.)

In the book Dany tells Khal Drogo's bloodriders to tell him for her: “Tell my sun-and-stars that I dream of him, and wait anxious for his return."

How would that be said in first person? (If she was directly speaking to Khal Drogo. And in the third for that matter, to the bloodriders?
And isn't the definition of "dream" negative in Dothraki, meaning literally "to live a wooden life"? So would that culturally be a positive thing to say?

I was trying to recall if she said this in the show, but can't remember.
