If the double post was due to impatience, please don't expect an answer in minutes (or even hours, really). This is a small community and if the few key people are busy, getting an answer might take a day or two.

We don't know Dothraki word for myself, and it's likely there isn't one. Dothraki deal with reflexives with a particle thingie, so you would, for example, say "I'm teaching myself Dothraki" like this: Anha nemo ezzok lekhes Dothraki.

Hehe. I didn't see that there was a double post so I answered the question in the other thread...Good to see that we came up with the same answer.

As for responses, I tend to check the forum fairly regularly but if there is no answer in a while that probably means I'm sleeping.

How about using the particle with an imperative? If you had to translate the famous "nosce te ipsum", would that be: Yer nemo nesas ? Or could you just drop the pronoun?

I'm think we have seen a sentence or two, where there is pronoun in imperative sentence just to accomodate for a verbal auxiliary, so my guess would be Yer nemo nesas is precisely how you'd say it. Would not swear on it, though.
