This research aims to study and to describe syntactically the preposition deletion in the prepositional Phrases in Modern Persian, based on Minimalism Syntax. The most fundamental axis of the research are to scrutinize the positions of preposition deletion, reasons for preposition deletion, and grammaticality of the sentences with deleted prepositions. The results show that the presence of the prepositions in Persian is dependent on the type of verb (valency/Transitivity), the relationships between the verb and it’s arguments, the grammatical roles and some semantic features, and in some cases can be optional. So the preposition deletion in some positions doesn’t make the sentence ungrammatical. Some of these positions and cases are as follows: 1- incorporation operation, 2- indirect object position, 3- Ellipsis due to previous repetition. 4- phrasal verbs, 5- complex prepositions, and 6- some prepositional phrases.
