There are a couple stories on Dothraki in today’s New York Times. Check out the main article by Amy Chozick here (“Concocted Languages to Make Other Worlds Feel Real”), and check out this supplement in the ArtsBeat blog by Jeremy Egner (“Rosetta Throne: Learn to Speak Dothraki”).
Also, if you happen to subscribe to Wired UK (the print magazine), there’s an infographic describing how to create a language that also features Dothraki (if you go to the current preview, you can view it on the fourth page. Otherwise, you’ll need to buy a copy of the magazine).
The version published in Usona is excerpted from a much longer version, which is published on Jim Henry’s website.
You may also want to take a look at HBO’s official Making of Game of Thrones blog, which has glimpses of the production and interviews with other people involved in working on the show. It’s an immense project. We’re honored to be contributing our part alongside so many other talented people who are giving as much attention to detail in all other aspects of the show as we are to the Dothraki language.
