Mahmood Naghizadeh, Rahim Ahmadi Nargese


The aim of this paper is to study and analyze the temporal concepts in Persian structure. This study has been done on the basis of cognitive linguistics. In this analytic-descriptive study, some dynamic verbs, temporal words, adverbs of time and temporal prepositions were chosen and also examples of personifications, simile, and metaphor were provided. Deductions were made that human is the central point in studying the temporal concepts because human is sometimes the source and sometimes the target for the movement of temporal concepts.
