By stating the limited system, Alexander defines the language of the pattern in specific rules that these rules can be the factor of culture, tradition, history, etc., in the matter of quantity and dimensions of peimoon and golden proportions. The pattern language of Christopher Alexander plays an essential role in understanding and updating traditional architecture and transferring meaning and function to modern architecture, as he believes that by expressing patterns and their role in structuring and adding them to the building, increases the life and quality of the building. In the current research, attempt has been made to analyze language of the Qajar model houses of Tabriz and its adaptation based on Christopher Alexander's theory of the three Qajar houses of Tabriz. In the meantime, the Qajar houses of Tabriz are more important due to their unique architectural components and the diversity of their spatial patterns on the one hand and richness of related decorations on the other hand. This research is based on a general, descriptive and analytical method. The statistical population includes a group of 30 experts. Data analysis was done by ground theory and multivariate entropy decision making with the help of MAXQDA and Spss software. The findings of the research with ground theory method showed that the language the Qajar house model in terms of aesthetics; Functionality and sense of place have been adapted to Alexander's theory. Also, correlation of three components with the model language of Qajar houses is equal to 0.966. The results showed that in terms of aesthetics, the house of Amir Nizam Grossi, Khatai and Ali Mesio scored 0.96, 0.92 and 0.81, respectively. In the functional dimension, Nizam's house scored 0.95 and Khatai and Ali Mesio houses respectively. They got 0.87 and 0.84 points. After Hess McCann, Amir Nizam's house scored 0.99, and Ali Miso's and Khataei's houses scored 0.93 and 0.91. The results showed that all three examined samples often obtained high scores. In fact, the structure of the research is based on the idea that the timeless quality of the Qajar house pattern is consistent with Alexander's pattern language theory.
