The secret is out! The LCS‘s own David J. Peterson has been chosen by HBO to create the Dothraki language for the upcoming Game of Thrones TV series. There has been plenty of buzz about the announcement; however, one of the coolest thing so far has been to see people attempt to use the snippets of Dothraki publicized so far in conversational ways, for example, here (“Read the release to get caught up on all the athastokhdeveshizaroon”) and here (“Hash yer ray nesi?”). There is no doubt as more about the language becomes widespread, people will be conversing like the horsemen with athjahakar.
Oh, and by the way, the photo is not of David J. Peterson. That’s Jason Momoa, cast to play the horse-lord himself, Khal Drogo. Gotta love Momoa’s jahak.
I couldn’t resist throwing another word in there. 🙂
