Dothraki Language Updates / Re: New words created for Amikumu
« Last post by Hrakkar on January 11, 2018, 02:51:13 pm »
I wonder if we should consider setting up a wiki dictionary for these new words, of course pointing out they are fan created and definitely not canon.

David Peterson is also very busy with a family and several other projects, I'm sure. I bet David would like to see what you have done as well.

Dothraki Language Updates / Re: New words created for Amikumu
« Last post by Khal_Qana on January 10, 2018, 10:55:46 am »
IMPORTANT NEWS

Amikumu Dothraki will be launched for Android phones sometime this week! The app will include a glossary of the 150 or so new words I constructed for the modern terms of our world, just so you don't get confused by words not found anywhere else (also so that you don't have to dig through this forum to find the definition and can just stay on the app).

I'll admit that my translations may not be 100% perfect, but it is still perfectly legible to any competent Dothraki speaker.  I said originally that I plan to edit everything and check my grammar over in the next month or so, but I think I'm going to push it back until the summer. I'm doing this because I didn't realize that they were ready to get it uploaded right away for one, and second I have school to focus on for the next couple months. This is good, though, because now this means my time opened up to work on my other passion projects for Dothraki, like the Atlas and dictionary updates.  Hopefully Reuben22 will be available to work too and we can make some serious progress on the project.

Here's a link to download the app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.amikumu.amikumu&hl=en

Hajates,

More words!

Jonat vint — To shut, close
Jonolat v — To become shut, to become enclosed
Ajjonat vtr — To shut something
Ajjonolat vtr — To make something become shut, to make something become closed
Kemilat v — to include
k'Athkemizari adv — "Includingly"
Kidilat v — To measure (loan word from High Valyrian)
Athkidizar n — measurement
Kiddiya  — Calculation, computation, logical reasoning
Vikidirat v — To calculate, compute
Kidigache n — dimension
Ethkis v aux — must try to. (used in the context "Shafka'thkis feni save"/"You have to try again")
Lirilekh ni — Letter/number/symbol/glyph/graph; "little language picture"
Acchale adv — At least one, greater than or equal to one (at+che+ale = one or more) "Choose at least one sword"/"Okki arakh acchale"
Yanqak na — Participant
Athhajmenar n — strengthlessness
Athhajar n — strength, status


And that concludes the first round of translation/editing for the Amikumu app!  So far, we have a decently translated language app (certainly not close to perfect though) with a whole bunch of new terms that can only be found on this thread in the forum. My plan is to further edit the translations until they're perfect, make a glossary for the app with all the terms made for Amikumu on it, and then get involved in the advertisement of the launch.  I'll keep you guys updated on what happens!

General Discussion / Song tidbit I composed in Dothraki
« Last post by Khal_Qana on January 08, 2018, 04:56:53 pm »
M'ath eyak!

I made a little 20 second diddy of a song written in the style I think the Dothraki would most likely develop in their culture.  It's heavily based in Mongolian Tuvan music, made with Eastern instruments and throat singing (something I spent an afternoon learning how to do so I could record this song), but has influences from Africa and the Steppe as a whole.

The lyrics so far go "Anha vo dothrok ma janoon che oqeti akka", which means "I do not ride with dogs nor next to sheep" and is supposed to be a song sung at night after a successful battle; something to flaunt the fact that you were victorious, but not something to rile you up and get you pumped.

I hope you enjoy!

This is an edit from hours later. I elaborated on the song some more and have a rough cut of what it's going to sound like

Dothraki Language Updates / Re: The Dictionary Thread

The wiki word list and dictionary only contain official words that have come from David Peterson, or are vetted by him

What would the process be to get him to vet new words into Dothraki proper? A lot of these words would be incredibly helpful to have as official terms before the Dothraki section of the app launches.

Quote
BTW, I am trying to find a weekend to update the dictionary

I apologize for being a little rude with my wording, then. I get too frank with my thoughts and opinions when passionate  :)

It would be interesting to start an unofficial dictionary with non-vetted words, with the understanding it will never be official or canon.

It would be incredibly helpful in so, so many ways if we did make an Unofficial-Official Fan Dictionary. Teaching concepts, drumming up interest, translating apps and things for videos, etc. would greatly benefit the language.



Being one of the moderators and having control of the Dothraki wiki/ dictionary, could you help me in getting some of these ideas and words off the ground and to the attention of DJP? These ideas could send Dothraki leaps and bounds ahead of where we are now, and I would love to see these ideas come to fruition!

Athcomar chomakea

I'm not sure what the official method of proposing new words is for the community, but since this is the dictionary thread I think I will post my list of created words here so that it can be peer reviewed before being added to the official lexicon.  These words come from the other thread I made about creating words for Amikumu, and I've separated them into two categories; words that can be canon to the Dothraki people of Essos (which is 131 new words currently), and words created for use in our modern world (95 new words).
