Athchomar chomakea!
« on: September 23, 2011, 09:54:19 pm »
I'm a student at Purdue university, have been a fan of Martin's books for a few years now and am absolutley thrilled with the way that Dothraki has come to life in the TV series.
As a student at Purdue I'm taking a few linguistics classes and at the end of this semester I'll be doing a full linguistic analysis of a language of my choice.  I'm hoping to do it on Dothraki and would like to learn as much as I can!  if anybody can give me some pointers and/or point me in the right direction for some of the phonology and whatnot that goes into making up this language it would be much appreciated.  when I do get the analysis done, if I think it's worth sharing I'll gladly post it on these forums so others can take a look, but thats assuming it doesn't end up just being a regurgitation of information on this site, we'll see what happens!  ;)

Hi and welcome. The currently known information of anything relating to the language including phonology can be found on the wiki at http://wiki.dothraki.org/dothraki/Learning_Dothraki

If you want to analyze the language beyond what exists in hte wiki I guess the audio sources page is a good place to start to find original sources of David speaking the language.

There is also now some good phonology stuff (including audio examples) on David Peterson's blog. You can find his blog at www.dothraki.com

BTW, I like your avatar!
