Linguistic Field: Language Acquisition
Subject Language: Persian, Iranian
Abstract: Learning of functional categories such as case system and light verbs are other aspects of second language acquisition. In this paper we have focused on the acquisition of structural case where Persian and Armenian exhibit same features and feature cheking properties. This research is intended to investigate whether the failure of L2 learners to acquire a native-like L2 is because of the differences in syntactic features or morphological ones. For doing so two Armenian learners, who came to Iran to learn Persian as a 2nd language for one year, participated in the experiment. both interview(tape recording) and Grammatical judgement test were used for the purpose of data collection. results indicates that contrary to Failure Feature Hypothesis, the persistent difficulty of L2ers in learning structural case can be of morphological nature.
