CAUSATIVE AND COPULATIVE STRUCTURES IN PERSIAN

Abstract: 

This article deals with the strings consisting of one adjective followed by the verb "kardan". TAbATAi (2005) has argued that most of these strings, such as chagh kardan (to make fat), zesht kardan (to make ugly), cannot be considered as compound verb. In this article, the writer, following TAbATAbi’s line of argument, shows that the above strings are made using a general syntactic process, or causation process, as the writer terms it, from copulative sentences. The writer concludes that the compound strings made up of an adjective and the verb "kardan", are causative structures appositive of copulative structures if they can be changed into copulative strings, and cannot therefore be recorded in the leXicon of a language.
