This article aims to discover and describe the major properties of Right Node Raising (RNR) in Persian regarding the related literature on RNR in other languages. Persian RNR properties distinguish it from other constructions. The occurrence of RNR pivot at the rightmost edge of the coordinate structure, non-constituents as RNR target, possibility of RNR regardless of the kind of conjunctions, possibility of separating the complement of wh-words from wh-words, and impossibility of preposition stranding (P-stranding) in RNR, agreement between verb and only the subject of the second conjunct in some cases, and agreement between verb and the subject of both conjuncts in some others, contrastive relationship between the constituent before RNR target in the first conjunct and the corresponding element in the second one, the existence of pause before the ellipsis site, and insensitivity of RNR to some islands, are among these properties. Some of these properties show that RNR is not the result of movement.
