Abstract This paper scrutinizes the lexical feature and syntactic position of the so-called obligatory adverbs in Persian. Previous studies have viewed Persian adverbs under two classifications, namely obligatory adjuncts and optional adjuncts, with no account of their syntactic position. Within Minimalist theory, following the specifier treatment of adverbs, we propose that obligatory adverbs, in sharp contrast with other adverbs, occupy no specifier position of any dedicated functional projections, rather they are base generated in the specifier position of Verb Phrase.
