Hello everyone !

I'm fixing some mistake in my french translate and David Peterson give me a other meaning of "velzerat" => to make excuses.


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).

I hope you take these proposed words into consideration and that we may include them in future updates of the dictionary!

The wiki word list and dictionary only contain official words that have come from David Peterson, or are vetted by him. BTW, I am trying to find a weekend to update the dictionary. The wiki is pretty much up to date.

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

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.

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 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!

Some custom word had been added already. We need to sort them quickly.
