Why are they calling me Dragonborn?
My Data Files and account details does not show Dragonborn and yet I absorb dragon souls, learn shouts and eveyone keeps calling me the Dragonborn, and the Greybeards think I'm a great guy. Do I have the DLC or not? Is Alduin part of Skyrim or DB DLC? I captured a dragon and I'm supposed to ride him somewhere.

I'm not sure what you're explaining here.

Uhmm...you're just trolling right? You are the Dragonborn from the start, the Dragonborn DLC is about the first Dragonborn Miraak.

the Dragonborn DLC has nothing to do with you being DRAGONBORN, in Skyrim you become Dragonborn because you are the HERO and kill Dragon's

Before there were any DLCs you were Dragonborn. You find out you are Dragonborn after you slay the first dragon at Whiterun and absord it's soul. Dragoborn or Dovahkiin in the tongue of the Dov(Dragons)which means you are a mortal man with the soul of a dragon. Which is why you can shout or use your Thu'um as it's called in Dov. The Thu'um is the way Dov battle a fight between two dragons is literally a deadly verbal debate.

...or woman, or mer, or whatever the term is for beast folk. (Actually, is there a word for female elf, or does 'mer' apply to male and female?) Also, some non-Dragonborn can use the Thu'um, e.g. Ulfric Stormcloak, the Greybeards, but it requires many years of study, rather than being picked up almost instinctively as it is for the Dragonborn. It's the ability to just learn different words in moments that's special, not the ability to use them, per se.

(I also think the 'verbal debate' thing is a wee bit of an overstatement, I'm not sure yelling "FIRE! INFERNO! SUN!" "ICE! FLESH! STATUE!" and "FORCE! BALANCE PUSH!" at each other is much of a debate...)

I figured Shouts were used in between normal speech of the Dov. Also, sometimes the Dragons can combine different words of power to create new Shouts. e.g. I've heard a dragon use "iis ro dah" for "Ice balance push".

Well, mortal RACE then I wasn't meaning to be derogatory. It's only implied that Ulfric can shout we never(to my knowledge)see him actually shout. And the verbal debate thing was taken straight from the game one of the Greybeards or Paarthurnax says it.

But a normal mortal can't use the Thu'um at the same capacity as the Dragonborn. They can with many years of practice and study yes. But nowhere near as quickly or as powerful as a Dovhakiin can.
OP has
723 hrs on record
so I assumed he is trolling but then I saw the OP is from,
Florida
So now I think he is being serious.

Mer means all the Elves, including the Orismer and Dwemer.

Sauce: The crazy guy by the cube who wants blood.

So if there is Man and Mer, what are the Khajit and Argonians? O.o
