Abstract [en]

This study investigates the usage of the singular verb for inanimate plural subjects diachronically as well as synchronically in order to find out whether this feature is on its way out of Modern Persian or not. The focus of the study is on Modern Persian, but it was found necessary to investigate the historical usage of singular verbs for inanimate plural subjects in Middle Persian and Classical Persian as well.
