Abstract : Based on the Minimalist Program, this study presents a grammatical analysis of the Persian noun phrases. It explains issues such as identifying the role of- rع, the categorical status of numerals and quantifiers, and the internal structure of the noun phrases. -Rع seems to appear only as a specific -oblique marker (Karimi, 1989), but I think this is not actually an accurate characterization of this morpheme. So, adopting Belyaev's analysis and under the Principle of Full interpretation discussed in Chomsky (1993), semantically this analysis indicates that -rع acts as a definite/ type-shifter. However, this study shows that direct objects in Persian are necessarily realized by a KP, but KPs are divided into two categories. First are the KPs which have the -rع marked DPs, second are the KPs which have the non- rع marked DPs. So, the KP in Persian has the -rع and a null head as a functional K. However, I argue that considering -rع as a functional head is not a sufficient and complete description of its function, and my analysis shows that -rع can take part in two different structures. It is claimed that -rع as an overt accusative case marker occupies the head of a KP, iff K0 carries the features [+accusative] and [+definite], and as a definite-oblique marker, a head of a Prepositional Phrase, occurs on noun phrases bound by indirect object clitics , and on time and place adverbials. Turning to the categorical status of numerals and quantifiers in a Persian noun phrase, the study shows that numerals behave as adjectives, although sometimes they may be used as a 'semi-lexical category' ( Klockmann, 2012), whereas quantifiers are different from adjectives. It is argued that the functional category Cardinal Phrase (CardlP) projects in Persian and a numeral occupies its head .This analysis also explains that only one feature, [+Numerable], is realized on Classifiers ( CLs) and separates them from number morphology. Furthermore, this work discusses the difference of the surface ordering found in the order of adjectives in Persian, and shows that it is related to an overt N-raising. It is claimed that Number Phrase containing two strong features, plural and definite, makes this overt N-raising over an adjective phrase (AP). Based on the Prenominal Integration Hypothesis (Croft and Deligianni, 2001), it is also suggested that Persian prenominal adjectives have a strict position, and are incorporated into the head noun..
