Abstract: This paper deals with the theory of the medieval Persian prosodist Shams-i Qays about the ending-at of the Arabic tā marbūṭa loan-words in Persian qāfiya. The tā marbūṭa loanwords are very frequent in Persian: according to recent studies, they represent more than seven per cent of Persian vacabulary ; on the other side, Persian words ending in -at are extrenmely rare. Shams-i Qays is so forced to build up a mixed system to include these foreign words with a non-radical ending in his theory of qāfiya, in which the last letter (rawī) of the words that rhyme must be radical. The theory is then compared with a sample of poetic texts.
