Abstract : This dissertation investigates variability in producing English and Persian wh- and yes/no question variants. Further, it probes the effect of gender and communicative functions in the construction of such variants by Canadian English and Persian native speakers as well as the Iranian EFL learners. It also explores the effect of L1 interference and the level of L2 proficiency on the wh- and yes/no question variants produced by the Iranian EFL learners. The correlational relationship between gender as a sociolinguistic variable and communicative function as a pragmatic one is also explored. An Edinburgh Map Task was used by 120 participants including 30 Canadian English native speakers, 30 Persian native speakers, and 60 Iranian EFL learners, all male and female; to perform and thus construct wh- and yes/no question variants. The data were subjected to Chi-square and correlational analyses. Based on the results, variability was observed in English and Persian wh- and yes/no question forms. Further, it was indicated that there was an extremely marginal effect of gender on English and Persian wh- and yes/no question variants, although the pioneering works such as Labov (1972) and Lakoff (1975) strongly assert that language is gender-based. This effect was more evident on the production of Iranian EFL learners particularly in the realm of yes/no question variants. Communicative functions, in comparison with the wh-and yes/no question forms, were less correlated by gender in this study. With respect to the communicative functions, the topic-introducing and presupposed context functions were the dominant ones used by the participants of the study. L1 interference seemed not to be involved effectively in the construction of English wh- and yes/no question forms. Concerning the level of L2 proficiency, no remarkable difference was found between Iranian advanced and intermediate learners. The linguistic performance in producing English wh- and yes/no question variants was similar in both groups. Regarding the production of the wh- and yes/no question variants and the use of communicative functions, it was shown that certain question variants and communicative functions were much more frequent than the others were and a tendency from highest to lowest could be observed as well..
