Dothraki: Bachelor's degree work
« on: December 10, 2012, 04:40:29 am »
Hi there! My name is Ann and i'm from Siberia. I am a student at the Faculty of Philology, and i'm working on my Bachelor's Degree Work. This work's theme is Dothraki Language and i need some help with it. First of all, i need texts on dothraki to use it as an example in my work. All the texts i've found in internet were too short, about 2-3 sentences, but it's not enough for me, i need more. Also i need as much as possible materials about this language, because russian dothraki society in internet is not very active and has not so many information. So i will be happy if somebody could help me with writing. Thank you!
P.S. Sorry for bad english)

Hi, autre_temps (french nickname?)

You can start with the dialogues from the TV show.

season 1 : http://wiki.dothraki.org/dothraki/Season_One_Dothraki_Dialogue

season 2 : http://wiki.dothraki.org/dothraki/Season_Two_Dothraki_Dialogue

Here is a link to the page of the wiki, where you can find the links to :
*a video of David presenting Dothraki language
* the 2 texts he reads in this video.

http://wiki.dothraki.org/dothraki/Audio_sources      (the three last links)

I don't think there are others full texts in Dothraki, except from those translated or created here.

You can also search on the blog from David http://www.dothraki.com

Shieraki gori ha yeraan, Autre_temps.

I think for longer texts the best place is probably this forum. Some of us have made various translations of things that you can find here and there on this forum.

I recently translated the lyrics to "Death On Two Legs" by Queen:

http://forum.dothraki.org/general-discussion/a-quick-translation-i-did/msg1527/#msg1527

I think the longest continuous texts that David Peterson (the creator of Dothraki) has written are the texts from the latest conlang relay at the Language Creation Conference last year. They can be found here http://dedalvs.com/relay/results/1.html and here http://dedalvs.com/relay/results/17.html.
