The present article sets out to report a contrastive analysis of adjectives in Persian and German languages. Adjectives in German are identified by morphological and structural criteria. While in Persian there is often no specific borderline between adjectives and other grammatical categories and it is not easy to identify adjectives. Persian speakers, however, use various skills for the identification of this category. In German language, an attributive adjective is conjugated according to its grammatical gender, number and case; whereas, in Persian, no agreement between an adjective and the noun it modifies can be observed. In spite of that, adjectives have some similarities in the two languages. For example, adjectives in both languages have attributive, predicative and adverbial functions. Also, comparative and superlative adjectives are morphological in Persian and German.
