Abstract: Abstract This study was aimed at investigating the discoursal variation of compliment responses (CRs) among male and female Iranian Persian speakers. A total of 60 elementary Iranian teenage EFL learners participated in the study. The data were collected through the application of written discourse completion tasks (DCTs), with four situations, i.e. appearance, character, ability and possession. The analysis of the data showed that both male and female groups mostly preferred Accept strategies in almost all the four situations; however, female participants took side with Evade strategies when receiving compliments for possession. The findings have generally a practical relevance to the speech communities under study by providing guidelines for the use of CRs. They have also pedagogical implications, helping males and female Persian speakers respond to compliments in a culturally acceptable manner.
