Present-and past perfect paradigms are commonly thought of as having the perfect aspect. Examining the concept of tense and aspect along with their definitions, the present study argues that what is often referred to as the perfect aspect in Persian is essentially a temporal concept. Taking into consideration the reference-, event-, and speech poin...

In addition to grammatical and intrinsic aspects, aspectual readings may also arise from other factors like tense. Past Participles (PP) consist of the root of the verb and the suffix "-de/-te". The suffix represents the anterior tense, which is the common semantic-grammatical core function found in all paradigms containing PP. Historical studies,...

It provides a descriptive-analysis by looking at the data gathered from certain Persian texts such as the eight-volume of Sokhan dictionary. T...

Number is a grammatical concept, whose singular/plural distinction has been mentioned in many Persian grammar books; but less attention has been paid to various semantic functions of plurality. So it is often interpreted as referring to more than one entity. The present article is an attempt to investigate mopho-semantic aspects of “hâ” as one of t...

Typological markedness causes grammatical relations to be encoded overtly in a clause. According to Croft (2003) unmarked objects are those with indefinite inanimate semantic features; conversely, definite animate ones are marked overtly. Indexation and Râ-marking often encode definite and specific objects in Persian. Although rare cases of encodin...

The present study aims at investigating the nature of object indexed elements in Persian. This is an essential element for deciding about the layered structure of the clause in the framework of the Role and Reference Grammar.Because of the inefficiency of the mere formal approaches, we appeal to the Role and Reference Grammar, a functional-structur...

Object indexation is a grammatical phenomenon in which a clitic pronoun, co-referential with the free nominal object, appends to the verb. Optionality of indexation in Persian leads us to consider the role of pragmatic and discoursal factors such as definiteness, specificity, and identifiability in its occurence. The present study aimed at investig...

Optionality of indexation in Persian leads us to consider the role of pragmatic factors in its occurring.

Some studies of complex predicates suggest that light verbs are bleached semantically and are unable to bear the role of an autonomous predicate (Jespersen, 1965; Cattell, 1984; Grimshaw & Mester, 1988). Although it is accepted that the semantic content of light verbs is deficient, we address the issue that such a claim ignores the semantic relatio...
