The Dothraki alphabet was invented by Carlos and Patrícia Carrion
as a way to write the Dothraki language, a constructed language
created by David J. Peterson for the television series,
Game of Thrones, and based on the invented words and phrases
used in George R. R. Martin's series of books entitled A Song
of Ice and Fire.
Type of writing system: alphabet
Direction of writing: left to right in horizontal lines
Used to write: Dothraki
There are two versions of the alphabet: the ancient and the new alphabets
The four vowels are formed by a basic one (e.g. A) simply turned 3 times by 90º
Pairs of similar sounds (hard/soft) have the same symbol turned by 180º (B-P; Ch-J; D-T; F-V; G-K; Sh-Zh).
Other pairs (M-N; L-R) are similar.
The semivowels W and Y have also by turned by 180º
Vertical short strokes indicate palatization (Th, Kh), some other modification (Sh, Zh), further modification (Q)
Long (double) vowels are represented by short vowels symbols + an additional short stroke
There are no number symbols in Dothraki
The first row of letters are in the Ancient Dothraki alphabet. The second row are
in the New Dothraki alphabet.
Shieraki gori ha yeraan!
The stars are charging for you. (Said to someone who is going into battle.)
