Do You Speak Dothraki?

Game of Thrones is an epic fantasy series on HBO based off George R.R. Martin books. What’s even cooler than the books being adapted to a television series is the creation of a made-up language called Dothraki. Thanks to the brilliance of David Peterson, a language creator for the Language Creation Society, Dothraki came to life in the Game of Thrones television series.

Dothraki, although a made-up language, has a dictionary with over 3000 words. In the dictionary, readers cannot only learn words but the proper way to form sentences and phrases. This might be quite helpful if you’re trying to pen a Dothraki love poem to someone special or send a unique birthday greeting.

Want to take a try at Dothraki? Here are some popular phrases:

Aena shekhikhi! Good morning!

Asshekhqoyi vezhvena! Happy birthday!

Yer zheanae (sekke). You’re (very) beautiful

So good luck with your Dothraki and please let us know how it goes by adding a comment below. If you fancy a challenge that will actually be useful for you one day (apart from just impressing your friends and yourself), why not try Arabic lessons instead?
