The importance of the role of language in acculturation and identification of one society is undisputable. From the aspect of Lacan’s psychoanalysis, the characteristics hidden in language are leading up to culturalization of the individual, further corresponding to their identification. Lacan views the culturalization of every person as a transition from the stage of ‘mirroring’ to the one of ‘symbolic order’. This process in the individual is possible due to language. The society is consisted of ‘the Other’, in the shape of laws, customs, values, norms as well as literature and myths. That is, myths as common language or common spirit, were transferred from generation to generation – and by the use of allegory and comparison – they have ensured their permanence in the form of tales and stories. This type of myths eased the culturalization and its transfer. Simorgh is one of the most notable Iranian myths. Iranian mind, taking away from the
myths, did not only change its viewpoint, but it also constructed fuller meanings, and in particular relation to the symbolics of Simorgh, it generally gave it a meaning of the ‘fuller human’.
