Constituent Ordering in Persian and the Weight Factor

Abstract : Studies on constituent ordering have pointed out the tendency to post-pose heavy constituents. However, head-nal languages seem to display the mirror-image tendency. In this paper, we present corpus data on the relative order between the direct object (DO) and the indirect object (IO) in Persian, an SOV language. Our study shows a similar effect in Persian; however, relative length plays a secondary role, since the position of the DO mainly depends on its degree of determination.
