Word for "young"?
I'm trying to translate the epithet "the Young Wolf" into Valyrian, but I can't find an actual word for "young." Has anyone seen a word for it, or know how I might be able to sort of jury-rig one?
AFAIK, the word for "young" isn't known. I know from others in the fandom that David Peterson has replied to people before and answered their questions about not yet known words/phrases, so you could try contacting him and seeing if he'll give you an answer. Twitter, maybe? (I don't use Twitter, so I have no clue where he might be likely to respond, sorry!)
That's a good idea, thanks! I don't have a Twitter either, but I might be able to get a friend to do it for me.
If you don't get a reply from the creator of the language himself the closest would be to use the word for new "arlie". This conflation of meanings happens in many languages, so it could be possible.
Thanks, that's a good point! I messed around on the Dothraki wiki and tried making up a word (riñenka, using the word for "child" and then the "-enka" derivational affix, so literally child-like), but the "arlie" usage makes a lot of sense.
Hmm yes. Seems an odd one to leave out, given the number of times it is referenced in GoT by Tywin Lannister of Rob Stark.
