Impressively, Jason Momoa Still Knows His Dothraki From Game of Thrones

Impressively, Jason Momoa Still Knows His Dothraki From Game of Thrones
From Gizmodo - November 11, 2017

Jason Momoas stint as Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones was notable but not exceptionally lengthy. Despite not having appeared on the show since 2012, however, Momoa hasnt lost his Dothraki chops.

On a recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show, Momoa took a trip down memory lane, recalling his time as one of the Drogos and whipping out some of the fictional tongue, developed for the Game of Thrones TV series by linguist David J. Peterson (based, of course, on coinages from George R.R. Martins novels). He speaks two phrases from the language, one to guest Sarah Millican and one for guest Hugh Grant.

I dont speak Dothraki, but according to one commenter, the phrases he says translate to You are the Moon of my Life, an endearment Khal Drogo used for Daenerys, and The rain will fall on your rotting skin until nothing is left of you but bones, for Grant. Eesh. That ones pretty serious.

Memorizing lines is tricky enough when they arent in a fictional language, so count me as impressed. Im looking forward to the Dothraki edition of Hamlet. (Those are the rules, right? All fictional languages eventually end up doing Hamlet?
