  1. @melnick88 Hey. A Game of Thrones the card game is rebooting with a fresh start. Time to make a comeback? /ingemar /ingsve

  2. Dotrakhi is Turkish

    This is how David Peterson who created the language describes it:
  3. Dotrakhi is Turkish

    "I" in Dothraki is "anha" which is clearly inspired by arabic. David Peterson who created the language is a big fan of arabic. The other example is not related to arabic however. What Drogo says is "Kifinosi yer nesi?" "Kifinosi" is the Dothraki word for "how" and it breaks down as ki-fin-osi which literally means "by-what-path". So the fact that the word starts with kif- is just a coincidence based on the words that form the compound rather than being related to keef.
  4. Dotrakhi is Turkish

    The Dothraki are a mix of a lot of steppe and prairie people which include asian people like the Mongols but there are also for example native american influences so it's not correct to say that the Dothraki are based on any specific people. Same goes for the few words that Martin has originally created. Khal is obviously based on Khan but most words have no obvious counterpart in any natural language.

    There has since been a confirmation that David is creating Valyrian. Of course David would be their first choice. The uncertainty was more in regard to whether they would create another language or not rather than who would do it.

    There isn't any official confirmation. In the profile on David on CNN's The Next List (Seen at the bottom of this page David and Dan mentioned that there are other languages in GRRMs world and that they are hoping David would create those as well. David later repeated that information in an interview on Stupid For Game of Thrones ( ) but that was before they agreed about any details or signed any contracts or whatever. What has happened since then is not known since they are keeping a close lid on things for season 3. What we do know is that David has work on 5 episodes in the coming season and that in total the word count is greater than it was in season 2. So the question is whether we believe that is just Dothraki work or whether it's more likely that it also means work on some other language.
