This study aimed at comparing English and Persian adjectives. Identification of Persian
adjectives is not an easy task; however, this is not the case with English adjectives for they
are easy to identify. Nevertheless, Persian speakers utilize some strategies to identify
adjectives from other categories. English and Persian adjectives have some similar and
different properties which affect language learning/teaching and translation. For instance,
adjectives in both languages have the same syntactic, and predicative functions. Moreover, in
both languages superlative adjectives are made morphologically. The findings of this study
can be beneficial for those who teach Persian to English speakers who are interested in
learning Persian language.
