All Root Morphemes in Dothraki [RESOURCE]
« on: December 14, 2017, 06:30:29 am »
M'ath eyaki!

Below is a list of every free morpheme found in Dothraki as well as any allomorphs, homomorphs or cryptomorphs that appear in the dictionary.  These roots have been shaved down to their most basic form, meaning most every morpheme ends in a consonant (unless absolutely necessary to the meaning the morpheme carries).  Inflectional and derivational morphology has been left out, but may be added at a later date.  These roots can be a useful learning tool — helping you to better learn and grasp the core meanings of Dothraki and better deduce the meaning of words that you may not know — as well as a good template for you to use if you're in a situation where you need to make a new word.  It was a great deal of fun to make and I hope you enjoy the resource!
