The aim of the present study is to identify and compare the type(s) of the possible alignment/agreement system(s) in Banafi, Papuni, Dosirani, Richi, Somghani, Gorganaei, Mosghani and Nudani. This study, typologically, was conducted within Comrie's framework(1978) to represent S (subject of intransitive verb), A (subject of transitive verb), and P/O (object of transitive verb) in intasitive and transitive clauses. The agreement types are (a) Neutral, (b) Nominative-Accusative, (c) Ergative-Absolutive, (d) Tripartite, and (e) ------, for which he has not proposed any name, that is, the Oblique-Oblique type (Dabir-Moghaddam, 2012). This research is a descriptive analytical study, and the required linguistic data were collected from « Ganjīne-ye gūyeʃ-ʃenāsī-ye Fārs (A Treasury of the Dialectology of Fars). Vol. 2, compiled by Salami (1384) and two other works in Papun dialect. According to the research findings, only Richi followed dominant (full) nominative-accusative type among the dialects mentioned above. The alignment/agreement types in other dialects were clæssified into two types: (i) Nominative-Accusative system containing the intransitive verbs as well as the transitive verbs formed with the present stem, and (ii) Non-Nominative-Accusative system containing transitive verbs formed with the past stems which often illustrates Tripartite alignment/agreement type in the study. Among the dialects with nominative-accusative versus non-nominative-accusative systems, Banafi, more than other dialects studied,was losing its non-nominative-accusative properties, and this shift was from non-nominative-accusætive to nominative-accusative structures.
