Abstract Some of the most important applications of corpus are natural language processing, writing dictionaries, following lingual changes and extracting information from texts. It is possible to use corpus for describing the function of language by different users. This project is written to describe and introduce a designed corpus of scientific articles. For making the corpus first a software was planned and made. This software supports different sorts of text such as doc ،docx ،rtf ،txt and pdf. Also, it is possible to choose the corpus parameter before making it, for example the number of allowed token for each file is determinable. At the next step scientific articles of professors of Ferdowsi University of Mashhad were collected. The corpus has 7.154.202 words in 1.100 articles. Then all articles were analyzed into its component sentences, word’s lemmas were extracted and parts of speech were annotated. For the last stage another software was designed for extracting information. Now the accessibility is limited that will change in near future and all researcher can benefit it. This corpus has high capacity to use for data extraction in different researches.

    -The Study of Morphology in Modern Written Persian Based on Typological Approaches.

 MA thesis, Ferdowsi University of Mashhad


Abstract Typology in linguistics is classification of language. One of the classifying ways of language is based on morphology. In this thesis the morphology of modern written Persian is studied based on typological observations. After theoretical and applied histories in second section, quantitative approach, canonical approach and morphological universals are introduced. Then the degree of agreement of each approach is measured with Persian language. Data is elicited from newspapers and is analyzed based on approaches rules and writer intuition. Results show that Persian is an analytic language; Persian does not agree with universals of morphology perfectly and Persian morphology can be ranked based on canonical approach. Beside these results, morphological hierarchies of Persian language are elicited.


Keywords: morphology, typology, lingual universals, hierarchies, Persian language                                            


 -A Study of lingual features of nonverbal experiences of Persian women and girls based on cognitive issues.  

Ph.D. thesis, Ferdowsi University of Mashhad

Abstract The most important matter in this thesis is speaker’s focus and consciousness in every moment of verbalizing a story. For exploring this matter different subjects such as hesitation (phonetics), word selection (semantics), interaction (psychology), evaluation (culture) and motion verbs (cognitive) were studied. The main goal is to study the verbalization of non-verbal narratives. The study based on experimental data from forty women and forty girls were attended in this research. They were asked to verbalize a nonverbal six-minute film. Based on the results, speed of speech and the power of analyzing the information in women are higher than girls; statistically there is a significant relationship between word selection and age; focus on interaction is different for the two groups; there is also a statistically significant relationship between the kind of evaluation and age; and also, there is a significant relationship between Self-contained Motion verbs and age. Altogether, we may say there is no identical classification of center of focus for the same experiment. There are even different classifications for the same speaker in different times.

    -Seyyedi, H., & Akhlaghi, E. Investigation of Stylistic Features of Quran in Word Collocation.


          Abstract Collocational relation is based on a relevance and sequence of two or more vocabularies whose co-occurrences can be predicted. In this research after definitions and relatively full literature review, 15 potential semantic relations are introduced. This study takes advantages of collocations to presents an innovative approach to categorize relations of Arabic text of Quarn. 54 forms of collocations are detected. This research shows that collocations can be one way or mutual, and also the use of collocation words in translated texts are more than the primary texts. It is also showed that collocation forms have a relatively high frequency with each other in the whole of Quran. In addition, the results show that contrastive relations have the most frequency among the other relations and also some semantic relations are absent in the detected collocation forms.
