I think I have already asked more than my share elsewhere, and will be asking much more...
But there are surprisingly many exellent questions already there - and good answers too. Interesting, to say the least.
Game of Thrones is not The Song of Ice and Fire, sweetling. You'll learn that one day to your sorrow.

I'll probably add most of this stuff to the wiki (vocabulary, that is) soon myself, but for time being, le's collect a rough round-up on new(ish) tidbits here:

Ivezhevethchiva qifokha she addo ajjalani.
"The horned-water beast bacons at midnight"
 - seems funny to me that "bacons" is translated as a verb, but nonsense is a tricky thing.
 - I remember wondering a moment ago about time prepositions/cases; this probably isn't the first time we see it, but as I did not really know, might be noteworthy that she is used.
 - qifokh - bacon

Anha nemo afichak orze ma jelloon meshes. Emmas mae fothaan majin anha zalak volderat kristasof yeri.
"I'll have a shoe with cheese on it, force it down my throat, and I want to massage your Grandmother"
 - again: it's tricky interpreting nonsense. I would have read the english version completely differently.
 - orze is probably an epenthesis-induced accusative, so this "shoe" could be orzo from phrase "Me orzo!".
 - We have emmat (causative of emat), but the meaning is ..eh.. a bit off. Might be a different word; might be just a bit different translation.
 - volderat - to massage
 - kristasof - grandmother ...strange that we don't have the word krista

niqikkheya - orgasm ...part of the result of rigidity? Probably pretty much.

Rek rakhi nharesi ithka'thim vindee hatifaan.
"that blonde hair kid needs to be stabbed in the face"
 - rakhi - boy (insulting) ...this is corroborated on another comment
 - ithka - blonde

Kash anha dothra vaesaan kash anha nem ilde ki loqami.
"While I rode to the city then I was hit by an arrow"

gomma - human mouth ...we have this just as mouth
hoska - animal mouth
govak - fucker (insult)
mattek - limper (insult) ...mattelat is probably "to limp"

Hovakraft anni nira gezrisoa evethizi.
"My hovercraft is full of poison water snakes."
 - we need to coin some unofficial word for a hovercraft.
 - note: poison-water snakes, not poison water-snakes... this makes sense

ijelat - to practice woman-on-top sex
athijezar - woman-on-top sex

jaqqa - executioner (or something to that effect)
adverb-like use of lekhaan as "enough"
arrissat - to fix

arrane - 'a public dressing down (i.e. a word for when you lambast someone in public in order to shame them in the eyes of others; derives ultimately from a word meaning "merciful")' ...I'm still a bit unsure of the exact meaning. Humilation by public flogging? Humilation by public scolding? Seems to be pretty close to "public humiliation".
karlinqoyi - gallop fast enough to kill a horse, if prolonged
kadikh - "an animal that's been captured but not yet tamed"
ita - suitably warm
fitteya - "an unnoticed and uncalled-for erection"

lakkhat - to chew
khizra (ni.) - marsh
khiro (ni.) - flag

I also contributed to the AMA by posting a question.

I registered under the name Astik and asked "M'athchomaroon, zhey lekhmovek. Hash yer ezhir ma vojjoroon mela mra shekhikh jalani dei?"

Can anyone figure out what I was asking?

Yep. But I had to google it. Shekhikh jalani dei is a damn cool expression, but my instinct on mra threw me off a bit.
