Out of the 32 letters of the Persian alphabet the letter ya /ye/ has a prominent role if it goes at the end of the words. It is due to the fact that the letter in this position can perform a number of various lexical and grammatical functions and act as both a derivational and inflectional morpheme specifying the semantic or grammatical meaning of a word or a phrase. Also, depending on the function of the letter in this or that context, its pronunciation and spelling may change. The articlepresentsall these complexities and describes functional peculiarities of the letter at the end of the words in the Persian language.

Key words: affix, letter, vowel, regularity, sound, rule, spelling, pronunciation, word-formation, consonants, suffix, epenthesis
