Abstract : The present study aimed to examine cross-cultural differences in performing the speech act of refusal of request between Persian native speakers (PNSs) and English native speakers (ENSs) in terms of the frequency of the semantic formulas. Also examined in this study was whether Iranian EFL learners would transfer their L1refusal patterns into the L2, and if there would be a relation between their proficiency level and the transfer of refusal strategies. To do so, 30 PNSs and 30 ENSs from both genders filled out the Persian and English versions of the same discourse completion test (DCT), respectively. The Oxford Placement Test (OPT) was used to form 30 Iranian high proficient L2 learners and 30 low proficient ones, who all filled out the English version of the DCT. The refusals strategies used by the participants were turned into semantic formulas, and finally, classified into 3 groups of Direct, Indirect, and Adjuncts to Refusals. The findings showed no significant differences in the use of Direct refusal strategies between the ENSs and the PNSs. Unlike the PNSs who outweighed the ENSs in the use of indirect strategies, the ENS employed substantially more Adjuncts to Refusal. The findings also indicated the occurrence of pragmatic transfer in the use of Indirect and Adjuncts to Refusals by both high and low proficient L2 learners. However, the low proficient L2 learners were found to transfer their L1 refusal patterns more than the high proficient group..
