Isn't "buzdari" a variant/Low Valyrian term for slave? What is the High Valyrian term?

It is belmurtys according to the High Valyrian dictionary: https://wiki.dothraki.org/High_Valyrian_Vocabulary

According to that dictionary, "belmurtys" means slaver or slave master, not slave. It seems that "dohaeriros" (sol) might be the proper term.

I just finished the High Valyrian course, when did you?

2 days ago. Feel like I rushed through it a bit so going back and reviewing so I can better appreciate the nuances of the language. Course is a bit short, but I really like it! Congrats on finishing!
