Shouldn't "Are those guests?" be fine? "Those" seems to be the answer in other exercises.


Are the accusative and nominative plural cases the same for Knight and Guest? Also, how many cases are there in Valyrian?



  • nom pl. azantyssy
  • acc pl. azantÄ«


  • nom pl. zentyssy
  • acc pl. zentÄ«

This is in the nominative case because the verb to be / sagon preserves the nominative case. (This happens in some natural languages too, for example, German.) sagon is seen here as issi (the third person present tense plural / they are ).

Eight cases:

  • nominative
  • accusative
  • genitive
  • dative
  • locative
  • instrumental
  • comitative
  • vocative
