Abstract:   (2028 Views)
The verb ʃodan (to become) is one of the most important and frequent grammatical elements in Persian language since it participates as a light verb in the construction of a main part of compound verbs expressing different aspectual values. One of these values is the telicity, the case in which its properties and recognition criteria have not been widely studied in Persian. The present research will firstly study some of the occurrences of compound verbs in which the verb in question is being used either in present perfect or in past perfect form. The study then will examine the properties which allow to recognize the telic aspect by focusing on verbal compounds of this verb that can take part in the expression of this aspect. In the end, this paper intends to verify the place and the function of the enunciation in expressing the telic aspect.
