For the analysis of any text based on Systemic Functional Grammar, three matafunctions are considered: textual, interpersonal and ideational. The latter is divided into two experiential and logical functions. In experiential function, language expresses the experiences of the outside world. The product of this function is transitivity that is used to specify different types of processes - which is found in the verb. In the present study, after analyzing randomly selected anecdotes and wisdoms in Golestan and Baharestan, which were common in the subject, we analyzed the differences between the applications of verbs in the two texts, using experiential function. Despite the significant differences in Sa’di and Jami's writing style, the results of comparing selected parts indicate less application of behavioral and existential processes, and more frequency of relational and material processes. Accordingly, Sa’di and Jami have not discussed the origins of the issues in these two works, but have given greater consideration to the actors' behavior as well as their account of events. This suggests that the use of different types of processes depends more on the content of the two works than on their writing style and linguistic characteristics.
