We've all been pronouncing Daenerys Targaryen's title wrong!
In an interview with Vulture Game of Thrones language maker (official title) David J. Peterson revealed that the Dothraki tongue pronounces Khaleesi as “KHAH-lay-see,” not “ka-LEE-see.” Boom, mind blown. Does the fact that every human on the planet butchers his made up fantasy language bother him? You bet.
"The vowel change bugs me... The producers decided they liked the other way better. They probably thought most people were pronouncing it that way anyway, which is true.”
