Learning Dothraki…. for Dummies!

Game of Thrones Season 7 starts back up in July so that means there’s still time to learn the Dothraki language 😀 The creator of the Arabic-Spanish mixture language, David J. Peterson, is teaching a 6 week course, 4 days a week at UC Berkeley, and promises it will be hardcore. Which is only fitting considering the Dothraki are pretty hardcore… (unless Khalessi burns them down to the ground again.) Peterson says “Students are going to be learning how to create a naturalistic language. These are languages that attempt as nearly as possible to replicate the quirks and idiosyncrasies of natural languages,” he told the university in an interview about the course. “It’s not going to focus on the creation of alien languages, or auxiliary languages, or parody languages.”

Class starts May 22nd…

Yer chomoe anna.

(You do honor to me. )
