Dothraki -- a response

The Language Creation Society has officially responded to my open letter requesting that they embed some useful experiments in Dothraki, a language they are creating for a new HBO show. You can read the response at Scientific American.

This formal response follows a series of informal emails between myself and both David Peterson (the author of the response) and Sai Emrys (the LCS president). It was a fun conversation, and while they're not taking me up on my suggestion -- at least not for this language -- I did learn a great deal from them, some of which makes it into their letter, which I recommend reading.
