David Peterson, along with Britton Watkins and Josh Feldman are giving a panel on Sunday, March 20th, 11 AM, at the Silicon Valley ComiCon. The panel, entitled "The Art of Creating Languages for Sci-fi and Fantasy" will feature some footage from the upcoming new film 'Conlanging'. This film features Jason Momoa!

I am trying to make arrangements to attend, but am not sure yet if I will be able to make it.

Announcements / Another language study
« on: February 11, 2016, 01:24:00 am »
If you are interested, here is another study survey being done on constructed languages. Although you could answer for Dothraki or Valyrian, you can also answer for your own constructed language, if any. Be forewarned though: A modest amount of linguistic terminology is used in the survey. If you are good at either Dothraki or any Valyrian language, you shouldn't have any trouble with it.

Announcements / Haiku time!

Beginners / Conversations in Valyrian
« on: May 17, 2015, 11:01:20 pm »
This is a thread to converse in Valyrian!

Since there are several dialects of Valyrian in use/being developed, but High Valyrian is the predominant dialect, please note at the beginning of your post what dialect you are using, if it isn't High Valyrian. If could be as simple as, say AV for Astapori Valyrian.

Use curly braces {  } to denote untranslatable words.

Optional, but strongly encouraged: Please provide an English (or other language) translation of what you wrote. As there is no desc or spoiler BBcode tag available on this board (I am looking into the reason why), you will have to put the English text a few lines below the Valyrian text.

Let the conversation begin!

Many of you know that Dothraki and Valyrian language creator David Peterson was working on a book on language creation. Well, the book is now available for pre-order. Follow the link below for more information. And if you help spread the word about the book, you might get your name used to coin a word in one of David's TV/film conlangs! (David loves to coin words from people's names.)

Here's the link to the book publisher's page:

Today is a big day for conlamgers to celebrate! The word 'conlang' has been added to the Oxford English Dictionary, the definitive dictionary of the English language. Even better, in the blog entry announcing the new word, the Dothraki language gets a shout-out!

And here is the actual entry (you have to be subscribed to the OED to read the full entry):

Thanks goes to David Peterson, who brought this to my attention through a post to the Language Creation Society list.
