GAMES OF THRONES’ sheer scope and ambition is due all the show’s plaudits and acclaim. There just hasn’t been a fantasy show of this calibre before or since. There’s been XENA, there’s been HERCULES, there’s even been MERLIN, but they don’t have a thing on THRONES. Fantasy has always been sadly absent from TV screens, and quality fantasy rarer still.
One of the most compelling aspects of the show was its believability, helped in no small part by language creator David J Peterson’s Dothraki and Valyrian. Many diehard fans will already be able to hold their own in conversation with Daenerys, Grey Worm or Missandei but now HBO has teamed up with Living Language (a branch of Random House) to bring the complex languages of Westeros and beyond to life.
The guide, compiled by Peterson, will include more than 500 unique Dothraki phrases. There may very well be a guide to the common tongue on its way. HBO will release LIVING LANGUAGE DOTHRAKI: A CONVERSATIONAL LANGUAGE COURSE BASED ON THE HIT ORIGINAL HBO SERIES A GAME OF THRONES on October 7th.
The guide is currently available for pre-order via the HBO shop.
