Abstract [en]

One of the striking features of written Persian of the 16th to 18th century is the vast use of participial clauses in complex sentences. This feature has not been the subject of any detailed study yet.

This period is coincident with the rise and fall of two significant Islamic dynasties in Iran and in the Indian subcontinent, i.e. the Safavids and the Mughals, and two minor ones in Central Asia centered in Bukhara, i.e. Shaybanids (Abulkhayrids and Janibegids) and Ashtarkhanids. The emergence of these dynasties and the political circumstances which were created after their establishment contributed to a new era in cultural and social developments. One of the most important linguistic developments was that New Persian became the literary language of a vast area which stretched from the Indian subcontinent to Central Asia, and the development of dialect variants of Persian.

The present study investigates the usage of participial clauses in three works from the above mentioned period, and from the above-noted regions, namely Iran, Indian subcontinent and Central Asia, where Persian was the literary language. For this purpose we have selected works that belong to the literary genre of historiography. These works are as follows:  1) Tārix-e ‘ālam ārā-ye ‘abbāsi by Eskandar Beg Monshi; 2) Eqbāl-nāme-ye jahāngiri by Mo‘tamed Khan; 3) Mohit al-tavārix by Mohammad Amin b. Mohammad Mirza Zamān Bokhāri Sufiāni.
