The Right Khal

You’ve read all the books, watched every episode of the series multiple times, and own enough memorabilia to fill a spare bedroom. The only way to go deeper with your Game of Thrones super-fandom is to learn to speak Dothraki — and now you can, with Living Language Dothraki, straight from the man who created the language for the hit series.

“I’ll talk about the book, but also give people a little jump into how to pronounce Dothraki,” says David J. Peterson. “They can test their mettle, as it were, and get some practice with it. I wouldn’t call myself a native speaker, but I can pronounce it pretty well.”

The book features everything from vocabulary and grammar to cultural notes, meaning that your Daenerys Targaryen cosplay will be second to none once you’ve assimilated it all. There’s even material never before heard on the show or in the books, making this an essential resource for the kind of fan who already has two Song of Ice and Fire tattoos and is planning a third. It even comes with a CD so you don’t have to puzzle out those weird pronunciations on your own. Peterson will discuss and sign the book tonight at 7 p.m. at the Tattered Cover Highlands Ranch, 9315 Dorchester Street. Admission is free; the book costs $19.99. For more information, visit
