In linguistics studies, the corpus is a collection of written or oral texts that can be used as the base for analysis and description of language. With the help of corpus, we can study the phonetic, syntactic, social and other aspects of languages. Linguists emphasize the importance of language corpus in their researches. In this article, at first we discuss the resources and component elements of corpus including the written and oral resources of the corpus in Persian lexicons in the Indian subcontinent and cotemporary lexicons of Iran. A sample of the corpus in the following Dictionaries of Persian, viz., Dehkhoda, Moein and Sokhan lexicons and some examples of computer corpus of Persian language are also given.
