Lajaki added a topic in DothrakiDothraki ForumHey everyone,
I thought I'd let you know that we now have a forum up at Dothraki.org for discussion of the Dothraki language. We hope to be the base for the dothraki language, and we'll pretty much be recording everything on the wiki and the forum. I sometimes feel like I wouldn't want to start a topic here about, say, Noun-adjective ordering in Dothraki. Our forum is the place to do that.
I've talked to Elio, the master of this here website, and he said it was cool if we linked here.
The link is here.
Hope to see you lajaki on the Dothraki sea.

Lajaki added a topic in DothrakiLanguage WikiWe've set up a wiki for the Dothraki language at Dothraki.org, and over the past month I've read the series again and noted every relevant quote I could concerning Dothraki, and also all of the other languages in Westeros, Essos, Sothoros, and the rest. This was no small feat, and it'd be great if others took up the call, looked through it, checking for errors or quotes I might have missed. My hope is to have all of the information regarding GRRM's languages in one place, so that eventually, if HBO considers making another language, they won't have to go far to find both research and willing fan base.
Check it out, here:
http://wiki.dothraki.org/dothraki/Original_Corpus <-- For all Dothraki information from the books
http://wiki.dothraki.org/dothraki/Other_languages <-- For all Other Languages from the books.
I have still to go through and chronicle the information which David Peterson has scattered around the web, but now I have a major obstacle out of the way...

Lajaki added a topic in DothrakiDothraki Dictionary & Dothraki.orgThis post is meant to do two things. First, announce the opening of Dothraki.org, then to talk about the first dictionary of Dothraki.
So, first off, I've really wanted to learn Dothraki since before it was invented, and so when I finally caught wind of all of this happening, I talked to the guy who created LearnNavi.org, and we've co-founded http://www.dothraki.org as a base for fans of the language. This wasn't too hard, since Learn Na'vi has been a pretty big success as a base for the conlang from the movie Avatar, made by Paul Frommer: we've had over 10k hits a day in the first few months, international media coverage, and currently have over five thousand members on the forum (which is saying a lot, as it is essentially supposed to be just a language forum). So, hopefully dothraki.org will be able to fill a similar role with Dothraki, providing a base for people to learn and talk about the language. We don't have a forum up, and probably won't until the series actually starts, but there is currently a wiki that we hope you'll use to record everything canonical about the language, and there is a twitter feed, facebook group, and youtube videos that'll keep being updated as more information comes along. So that's pretty cool. There's a youtube video up there (by me) right now, explaining the current situation, but if you're in this forum currently, you probably won't learn anything new.
Secondly, I've gone ahead and used the format for the Na'vi dictionary (Which I wrote and have been updating for the past half a year: you can see it here if you're interested) to make the first Dothraki dictionary, which I hope to keep updated as time goes on and more words come out. It's pretty rudimentary, and perhaps a bit ridiculously small, at this stage. But I'm ok with that, because it will grow. Go and see it here:
The Dothraki Dictionary
Let me know of any errors or anything - although I don't think there are that many currently. Hope you enjoy it.
And that's it!
