Abstract
In order to compare English and Persian greeting forms, a model of sociopragmatic contrastive analysis was used. The corpus used for the study comprised of Persian greetings used in naturalistic contexts and English greetings used in movies and other video or audio media. The analyses revealed two patterns for English greetings and 5 patterns for Persian greetings. The results and pedagogical implications of the study are discussed.
