NOTE Conjugations are colorized correctly in Firefox but Google Chrome fails to colorize Persian texts correctly. If your browser is Chrome, please use conjugation colorization only for verbs entered in Latin alphabet.


You can enter verbs either in Persian alphabet or in the following romanization scheme. See Persian alphabet and pronunciation for more information.

NOTE If you can't type the following characters, use their alternative form.


NOTE The khwâ (خوا) of Persian script is maintained in romanization. Among other reasons, the homophone verbs خواستن (to want) and خاستن (to rise) remain distinguishable. Therefore, خواستن must be entered as khwâstan and خاستن as khâstan. Other verbs having khwâ include: khwâbidan (خوابیدن), khwândan (خواندن).

Tense names

Each language has its own way of naming tenses. For example, the tense of «I have gone» is called «present perfect» in English, «past perfect» in Spanish, «compound past» in French and «narrative past» in Persian. Moreover, not all tenses of a language necessarily have an equivalent in another language. For example, English doesn't have the tense of «rafte bude» and therefore, it can't be named according to English tense terminology: calling it «past perfect perfect» makes no sense. For these reasons, it's best to introduce the tenses of a foreign language with their original name. This is followed both here and in my articles about verb conjugation in Persian. In your books and other places, you may see names that are similar to what is used in your native language but please note that not all tenses are discussed there. When it comes to talking about all Persian tenses, the only possible way is to introduce them by literally translating their Persian name.
