Asshekhqoyi Vezhvena Save!

Yes. It’s that time again. No, not time for Week 3 of the NFL season or another NHL lockout: It’s time for our own khaleesi Daenerys’s birthday. Asshekhqoyi vezhvena, zhey khaleesi! I couldn’t get you a dragon, because, well, you have them all, so here are some words (along with audio files) to fill in a few gaps on the Word Groups page you’re working on (note: all nouns below are inanimate):

English Dothraki Audio
forearm qorraya
wrist, ankle hlofa
chin vik
lip heth
shoulder elme
heel vemish
to frown nivat
to swallow ijelat
brain (human) yothnhare
to weave soqat

And though we already know the word, dis (the adjective) is used to refer to plain or unpatterned clothing. Happy birthday again, zhey Dany! I hope it’s a good one.

Fonas chek!

  1. So brain is literally “head fruit”? That’s awesome.

    • Heh, heh. Yep. :) Came from the old days when I would go to my grand aunt’s house and she’d make this soup with something they’d translate as “meat of the head” in it. I thought they were some kind of meatball. Nope. Goat brains.

  2. Head fruit? Sounds like the way a lion might describe brains ;)

    Athdavrazar on the new words! You never cease to amaze us with these creative new words.

  3. I’ll add additionally that the audio files for these words are particularly useful, and helped me catch something I was pronouncing improperly!

  4. Oh I LOVE this! Thank you!! :^)
