Subject Language: English
Abstract: Based upon the constructionist account of language, the aim of this paper is to study the pragmatic and functional awareness of Iranian EFL learners particularly regarding proper use of ditransitive verbs. Taking this new theoretical approach into consideration, the researcher attempts to reveal the discourse and functional awareness of typical Iranian EFL learners while using ditransitive verbs so as to construct a well-formed and appropriate sentence. Overwhelmingly, the subjects utilize just one type of possible structure irrespective of discourse and functional considerations maintained by constructionism. In other words, the investigator draws the conclusion that within a constructionist framework, there exists lack of discoursal and pragmatic awareness while Iranian EFL learners produce a sentence taking in ditransitive verbs.
