Clitics are linguistic elements which have different behaviors. In other words, they are similar to affixes in terms of their structure but have syntactic function unlike affixes. In fact, they have no function in word formation but have roles and functions in structures bigger than words. Today, one can find these very specific linguistic units that are largely studied, in most of the languages of the world. The present article is a corpus-based study about clitics in poems and analyzes the clitics of Parvin’s poems. The research data have been collected from different types of poems of Parvin Etesami and have been recognized, classified and analyzed according to Zwicki’s classification. The results indicate that some types of clitics are not used in poems. These are due to the differences between the language of poem and colloquial speech on one hand and poem features of the poet on the other hand.
