M'athchomaroon!
Anha Khal Esizigo ha khalasar zhavvoki.
San athchomari yeraan chosh kemiki anna.

Complete noob here. Started learning with the dothraki companion app and the wiki about a week ago. My greeting above is probably riddled with errors but I tried to make it unique I hope. it makes sense.

I think I'm doing pretty well. Should be purchasing the book next week sometime which is really exciting. Aaaaaand yeah... Hi :)

M'ath, zhey Khal Esizigo!

Actuallly, that's a really good start! Either I or Qvaak will look at this later for correctness (I am on lunch at work and have limited time).

Do you have the book as well?

Don't tell Khal Drogo I am here ;)

Hello from me too. Obviously I'm not the most frequent around here right now, but I'm still around, and if you need grammatical assistance on the Dothraki side of the site, I may be of some help.

Not bad at all :) Zhavvoki is puzzling. Is it a misspelling or misderivation from zhavvorsa? Or is it some kind of queer really ambitious derivation from zhav like "true lizarders"? Or a word I have just missed?
Skipping that, a quick correction run yields

haha thanks for the reply qvaak.

Zhavvoki is a created name that my partner and I came up with as a sort of family/tribe name for us. Its  derived from Zhavvorsa and Okeo, so kind of like friend of dragon..

I think i understand your corrections haha. Why the inclusion of zhey?

ach. A bit on the opaque side, but since it's a name, if it's cool for you, it's cool.

I was thinking that you wanted to say ~"Cheers, my new allies."
Addressing is not a grammar-free thing. Sure English and many other languages do it very straightforwardly, but Dothraki uses zhey to facilitate the function.
