Abstract:   (4825 Views)
Greenberg and those inspired by his work have argued that in order to carry out research on LU it is necessary to have data from a wide range of languages. Having this on mind, attempts were made in the present study to collect data in terms of a verification of a statement in Farsi. Accordingly, 32 monolingual Farsi-speaking children with similar social and economical status were randomly selected. The results suggested that the subjects do not follow the universality hypothesis of language regarding verification strategies. However, the response order appears to be a tendency universal as predicted by the universal grammar.
Keywords: universality, verification, response order, Farsi, monolinguals
