Game of Thrones Linguist David J. Peterson says House of the Dragon scripts are the best he has ever worked with




Learning a new language is a fairly difficult task, let alone learning a fictional language. Getting the intonations and pronunciations to the point takes months of dedicated practice. An important part of a good fantasy is making sure it sets itself apart from reality, and a key component involves languages. The languages Dothraki and High Valyrian were fully developed solely for Game of Thrones. They were based upon the limited use of the languages in the books, by linguist David J. Peterson. He is also working on developing the scripts for House of The Dragon, as previously reported, the show will feature a lot of High Valyrian.

Peterson talked to the Bald Move podcast, and revealed the House of The Dragon scripts are the best he has ever worked with. He revealed, “Reading them….they are really, really good. And that’s one of the reasons why it was more challenging. It’s like “God, they don’t feel natural, I have to do my best.” And by the way, it was an absolute pleasure working on this. Because I’ve been in a lot of different series and movies and have had a drastic change of experiences from series to series. So it’s been really good to work on this series that’s doing so well.”

Peterson also mentions that High Valyrian was the only language he worked on in the first season of House of the Dragon, but that he hopes to do more in the future. Are you excited about House of The Dragon? Tell us in the comments below!
