TENSE IN PERSIAN: ITS NATURE AND USE, is a comprehensive work on the
Persian tense system, which is composed in 6 chapters.

1) Theoretical preliminaries
2) Review of the related literature
3) The morphology of Persian tenses
4) The semantics of Persian tenses
5) Tense in the Persian discourse
6) Summary and conclusion.

The theoretical framework chosen for this study was Comrie's (1985)
work TENSE, but some other important books such as Dahl (1985) TENSE
AND ASPECT SYSTEMS, and Decklerk (1991)'s work TENSE IN ENGLISH have
been used. Covering the different aspects of the Persian tense, the
book can be useful for those interested in TAM studies, specially
those who are interested in Indo-European linguistics.
