Beginners / Re: Vo or vos?

Ah good.
Firstly I thought about consonant/vowel case too, but like you said "vo" there is in both cases, so I discard it immediately, but if the "vo" ahead of a vowel could be considered a mistake, makes sense :D

By the way, it's:

if the word that follow the negation starts with a consonant, it could be used "vo" instead of "vos" to help the pronunciation but it's optional, while it would be an error to use "vo" ahead of a vowel.

While I was reading the episodes scripts, I saw:

"Rakharo: Vo mawizzi vekho jinne -There are no rabbits. "
"Rakharo: Dothraki vo ondeo shori tawakof. - Dothraki don't wear steel dresses. "
"Rakharo: Hash yer ray tih loy alegra zhey vikeesi? Vo mawizzi, vo alegri."
"Drogo: Vo sorfo. Rhaeshi. - Not dirt. Lands"

and some more

But in the dictionnary I found only "vos" as "not".

Why in some sentences there is "vo" and in others "vos" ?
I was wondering it was for the future tense, but that's not true  :o

I didn't find anything in the wiki, but I don't know if I missed that or if there isn't nothing at all.   :-\

Thank you so much! Now I check what kind of disaster I created transcribing a part of a speech XD

Hi there!
I'm Christian, I'm Italian and though I've not read Martin's books yet, I'm in love with Dothraki's language :D
I'm very fascinated by conlang also if I've only studied the LOTR Sindarin some years ago and nothing more (and I don't actually remember almost anything! XD).

Sorry in advance for any grammar mistake I could do but I'm quite rusty in written English, 'cause I don't write/speak it so often. I listen to it much more because of tv series and movies. So I will try here to kill two pigeons with a stone..learn Dothraki and dust off a bit my English  ::)

I've to admit I've been studying Dothraki for some weeks, with all the thing on this site, before writing here and now I'm updating myself with the last things added :D
The last episode of GoF has been fantastic, with the great Dothraki (spoken) part! there somewhere the Dothraki speeches transcriptions?  :o
I got something listening to them, but I'm so far from understand all perfectly  XDDD

BTW, you've done a great work with this site! :D
