The purpose of this study is to determine the type and frequency of lexical semantic relations between Persian and Arabic terms, and to investigate the meaning of Arabic terms in Persian. For this, Bozorg Sokhan dictionary and Abdolnabi Ghayyem Arabic dictionary was chosen and common Arabic words in Persian were extracted from the above dictionaries. Then based on some linguistic tests, six  types of lexical semantic relations including synonymy, hyponymy, semantic opposition, meronymy, member collection, portion-mass, were identified and the frequency of each of them was determined at the level of words, along with the meaning of each word. The frequency of the occurrence of each of the semantic relations in 4506 words was as follows: synonymy 76,83%, hyponymy 14,75%, semantic opposition 0,28%, meronymy 0,57%, member collection 0,04% and portion-mass 0,13% determined. Also, by matching the 4506 words with each other, a total of 26326 matchings were performed, the frequency of occurrence of lexical semantic relations among these adaptations were synonymy 16,75%, hyponymy was 2,61%, semantic opposition 0,04%, meronymy, member collection 0,007%,  and portion-mass 0.02% respectively.
