How to say 'you are'
« on: July 01, 2014, 12:03:30 pm »
M'ath!

Just a quick one, I need a few phrase translations! How do I say:
'You are..', 'I am..', 'I love..' and 'What are you doing?'

Thanks in advance.

'What are you doing?'
I'm not super confident with questions, but this should be just Fin yer ti? - essentially "What you do?". In plural Fin yeri ti?

Quote
'I love..'
Just Anha zhilak and then the object in accusative. If the object is a foreign word and you don't want to introduce it into Dothraki case system, you can use the preposition haji, eg. Anha zhilak haji Daenerys.

Quote
'You are..', 'I am..'
The short answer is that "You are.." is said Yer.. (in plural Yeri..) and "I am..." is said Anha... That's because Dothraki uses zero copula. The harder part is to end the sentences, because there are some surprise tricks there ... but maybe the article I linked and this: http://wiki.dothraki.org/Syntax#Zero_Copula_Sentences is enough to help you through them.

Game of Thrones is not The Song of Ice and Fire, sweetling. You'll learn that one day to your sorrow.
