What is the Dothraki language?

Created by David J. Peterson, the Dothraki language was used by the Khalasar in the HBO show Game of Thrones. At the beginning of the show, Daenerys Targaryen is married off to Khal Drogo. This is the turning point in her life as she learns how to live with the Dothraki tribe and make her place in their hearts. Slowly, she learns the language and becomes the true Khaleesi, able to command the respect and admiration of the Khalasar.

Being a language of nomadic warriors, Dothraki does not have a writing system. Moreover, the speech is raw and authentic, borrowed from instances of Russian as the Dothraki tribe itself is inspired by the Mongolian ruler Genghis Khan’s armies. Peterson further elaborated that the language borrows breathy sounds and growls from the Arabic language.
