The purpose of the present research is to investigate the formation of locative nouns in Persian which are not semantically similar in spite of their resemblance in functions. The suffix "-zâr" in Persian, for instance, indicates both the concept of location and multiplicity of something: "golzâr and lâlehzâr". The other suffixes of location, however, do not bear this semantic property. It's worth mentioning that along with the above mentioned process, two other processes of "compounding" and "derivation-compounding" are also investigated here. Thus, the authors in the present research have attempted to investigate these semantic constraints which are dominant on such suffixes, using the achievements of cognitive morphology such as categorization theory, conceptualization and configuration. Eventually, the authors attempt to introduce the cognitive potentials contributing to the formation and usage of these locative forms
