Legends and fairy tales are the first important events of socialization in children's lives; in fact, all of us have been affected by these imaginary stories. The reflection of this influence is evident in the foundations of the culture and public manners of every nation. The story of "Naranj and Toranj" is one of the old folk oral stories in Persian literature, which has been narrated in different ways in different regions. Examining and analyzing different narratives of the story of Naranj and Toranj from the perspective of language and gender is an issue that will be addressed in the present research, using the method of content analysis. The story describes the life of a childless king who makes a vow and has a son. The story describes the events that the prince leaves behind in order to reach Naranj and Toranj's daughter. This research examines and analyzes the vocabulary of different narrations of Narenj and Toranj story from the linguistic context in the selection of words and in the next step of semantic engineering from a gender perspective. This study was formed with the aim of knowing the extent of the use of semantic engineering to convey meaning in context. Therefore, the results indicated that the co-occurrence patterns, frequency and distribution of cases and even syntactic structures have a great influence on the words to the extent that the meaning of a word in the text cannot be recovered in the dictionary definitions.
