Based on how formal a conversation is, how much familiar the speaker and the listeners are with each other and how distant is the speaker's social status from the listener's one, the speaker uses certain forms of language known as styles of language. Linguistic styles are different from language varieties. Selection of the styles depends on definite social situations and the kind of relationship between the speaker and the listener. This article aims to represent a clear picture of different Persian linguistic styles and this can be useful in collecting and describing linguistic data for different researches. In addition, a framework is created for editing different texts regarding linguistic styles and also for literary criticism in the fields related to linguistic styles. This article studies the linguistic styles in Persian and introduces a style spectrum consisting of deferential, formal, semi-formal, colloquial and slang styles in Persian.
