Abstract [en]

Morphologically, magar is made up of ma+agar, which literally means “not+if”. It fulfils several syntacticand pragmatic functions which have shifted over the course of time. This paper focuses on the use of magarin Tārikh-e Beyhaqi (11th century). The study will be conducted within the framework of a functional-structural approach with a pragmatic orientation. We argue that magar is an elusive particle, the precisesyntactic function of which is governed by the context. We also argue that some instances of magarfulfil a pragmatic function that fits into the theory of indirect speech acts.
