This article, firstly focuses on types of coordination, coordinating conjunctions, and also the literature on coordination in Persian, and secondly discusses multi-headedness and coordinating conjunction as a functional head, and points out the shortcomings of spec-head-complement and adjunction models for coordination. Regarding the essence of conjuncts, the paper explicates that coordination is possible at any level even at a level lower than word. Finally it deals with a new approach known as ”conjunction as a pure merge operation” which says coordination is possible at any level.This new approach can be exploited to represent coordinate structure in Persian.
