Abstract [en]

The Sistani dialect, though a dialect of Persian, displays its own manifestations of morpho-syntactic categorieson the verb form. The purpose of this article is to investigate the verb system of the Sistani dialectas spoken in Sistan based on linguistic fieldwork carried out in the village Sekuhe (locally known as Sakvâ)and provide a synchronic description of its verb structure and the realization of verbal morpho-syntacticcategories including agreement, tense, aspect, mood, and voice. The oral texts used as linguistic data,which compose the corpus for describing and analysing the given morpho-syntactic categories for verbsin the Sistani dialect, were extracted from the free speech of 10 males and 10 females between the ages of7 and 85 with different social backgrounds living in Sekuhe. The findings of the present study show thatthe Sistani dialect employs what are basically its own morpho-syntactic elements to manifest agreement,tense, aspect, and voice in its verb system.
