A Contrastive Analysis of the Persian and English Definite Articles.
Faghih, Esmail
IRAL, v35 n2 p127-38 1997
Overviews language transfer and a renewal of interest in contrastive analysis (CA) as a suitable testing ground for language transfer. Focuses on Iranian students' difficulty in learning the English definite article, "the." The CA reveals that in Persian, there is no single word corresponding exactly to the English definite article.
