Default Re: 'Wherry' in other language translations

What did you translate "wher" to?

Given the relationship between dragons and whers, I feel like a wher would be closer to a wyvern. Maybe not in body type, but more like...a less evolved dragon.

To me, a wherry is something (according to the drawings in the dragonlover's guide to pern) like a stringy-feathered emu or ostrich. Although you could posit that maybe "wherry" was like a "turkey". Except Pernese.
Read my Pern and Talent fanfic on Archive of our Own.
