Nature cos i'm werewolf and have a deep connection to nature, anger cos thats what i'm usually feeling and adventure cos duh it's skyrim. The one thing you do is explore and travel- and i just found it here www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=…

Maybe make a second version of this with all the same words, just with the English ones first, and call it "English to Dragon" since this one is "Dragon to English". I think that would work.

I hope some day we can have the completed Dovah language, I'm trying to get my characters name translated but the last part of the first and last name don't have exact translations into Dovah. I know the first parts though my first name has a word already in dragon which is Vul and translates into dark and Sea is part of my last name which translates into Okaaz in Dovah.

Very nice, but I sugest you add Grammar notes. Its close to English yet not the same. Grammar is not hard. Gramatical rules are written on UESP wiki. Can we make sintences :D

And a little note (not really important and left out most of the times anyways) half the words are written in kapitals. dovahkiin is DOVahKiiN (kaptial DOV K N). I don't know where there should be cappitals for wich word btw, but again its all on UESP wiki. And like I sayd not much do it, its not that important.

May I ask your sources of this? Only in game or also out of that?

And about the capitalization of some of the words, I beleve that they are capitalized only when they are used in shouts. When I talk to the city guards after succesfully calling the peace treaty, they will some times say "Yes Dovakiin, how can I help you?" I have it like this because I believe that when it is actualy said and not shouted it isn't capitalized.

Does anyone know the method of making a dragon word? It isn’t like we use English and place a letter. Example: DOVah = Dragon. Dreh = Do. What is the method of getting these words? Or is it just words are made and given out? Meaning there is no method but they are just randomly generated.
