Dovaogēdy!

Okay so I'm struggling with some accusative noun forms in the case of Unsullied

Dovaogēdy - normative noun Singular Dovaogēdi - normative noun Plural

Dovaogēdī - accusative noun Plural

How about accusative noun form for singular?

dovaogēdy is a lunar noun of the second declension (Source: Vocabulary list at dothraki.org)

It should follow the same pattern as given for trēsy (both are 2nd lunar nouns and end in -y in the nominative singular) (See: High Valyrian Noun Declensions at dothraki.org)

From that I get:

Singular
  • Nom. dovaogēdy
  • Acc. dovaogēdi
Plural
  • Nom. dovaogēdi
  • Acc. dovaogēdī

So the accusative singular and the nominative plural are identical (this is not true of all nouns, but is true of lunar nouns of the second declension).

The nominative and accusative will probably suffice for now - later in the course the other cases are looked at too, but in my opinion much less. I include the following should you wish to view the singular and plural through all 8 cases; if not, just ignore it:

Singular
  • Nom. dovaogēdy
  • Acc. dovaogēdi
  • Gen. dovaogēdo
  • Dat. dovaogēdot
  • Loc. dovaogēdȳ
  • Ins. dovaogēdomy
  • Com. dovaogēdomy
  • Voc. dovaogēdys
Plural
  • Nom. dovaogēdi
  • Acc. dovaogēdī
  • Gen. dovaogēdoti
  • Dat. dovaogēdoti
  • Loc. dovaogēdī
  • Ins. dovaogēdommi
  • Com. dovaogēdommi
  • Voc. dovaogēdys

Caveat: It is always possible that I have made some errors in adapting these, or that there are irregularities of which I am unaware.
