Eseneziri! I'm David Peterson, the creator of the Dothraki and High Valyrian languages for HBO's Game of Thrones, and the alien language and culture consultant for Syfy's Defiance. AMA
M'athchomaroon! My name is David Peterson, and I'm a full time language creator. Feel free to ask me anything about my work on Game of Thrones or Defiance or about language, linguistics or language creation in general (or whatever. This is Reddit). The only thing I ask is if you're going to ask about Game of Thrones, try not to reveal any spoilers if you've read the books. Fans of the book series have been pretty good about this, in general, but I thought I'd mention it just in case. I'll be back at 3 PT / 6 ET to answer questions.
8:14 p.m. PT: All right, I'm headed out to dinner, but I'll check back here later tonight and answer some more questions. I'll also check back over the next couple days. Thanks for all the questions!
10:25 p.m. PT: Back and answering some questions.
1:38 a.m. PT: Heck of a day. Thank you so much for all the questions! I'm going to hit it for the night, but like I said, I'll check back over the next couple of days if there's a question you have I didn't get to somewhere else. Otherwise, I'm pretty easy to find on the internet; feel free to send me an e-mail. Geros ilas!
