On Dov vs. Dovah
The word dovah can refer to a singular dragon; “you are a mighty dovah.” It can also refer to multiple dragons in the right context; “she has slain many dovah.”
Dovahhe is the plural form of dovah and refers exclusively to multiple dragons; “he has loyal dovahhe at his command.” Oftentimes dovah can be used in its place, so it’s not seen much.
The word dov is a special word that refers to all dragons, or the entire race of dragons. Much like “the dunmer” or “the dwemer” it can be used with a definite article; “the dov." Unlike "dunmer" or "dwemer," it can’t be used to refer to a singular dragon. It is often used in a phrase like "of the dov" to refer to someone or something that is of the race of dragons.
In the dragon language itself, there are two ways to express things like “dragonblood” or “dragonborn.” One is dovahsos "dragonblood," and the other is sossedov "blood of dragonkind." This is why it’s Dovahkiin instead of Dovkiin, and Dovahzul instead of Dovzul. Correct synonyms of those would be Kiinsedov "born of dragonkind," and Zulsedov "voice of dragonkind" - not quite as catchy!
Incorrect: "I am a dov.”
Correct: "I am a dovah" or "I am one of the dov.”
Incorrect: "We dov are immortal.”
Correct: "We dovah are immortal” or ”We of the dov are immortal.”
Incorrect: ”Dovah were made for domination.”
Correct: "The dov were made for domination.”
I hope this is helpful!
please DO NOT assume that just because my character is doing something that i as the writer
- approve of it
- am romanticizing it
- have a kink with regard to it
- think it is okay for anyone to ever do ever
because sometimes my character does things that I absolutely cringe at and which are almost painful to write.
but my writing a villain does not make me a villain
understand that it is fiction and I do not condone the wrong actions that sometimes are written out on my blog for in-character purposes.
