Sal?rs, with a population of 100.000, are one of the Turkish people who live in the People’s Republic of China. A part of Sal?rs live in Xúnhuà (?ün-hua) Sal?r Autonomous Region of Q?ngh?i state that is northwest of People’s Republic of China. Another part of Sal?rs live in Yining (Gulca) city of Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (X?nji?ng Wéiwú'?r Zìzhìq?). The aim of this study is to explain the derivational suffixes of Ili (Y?lí) Sal?r Turkish. In this paper, derivation suffixes (derivational suffixes from noun to noun, derivational suffixes from noun to verb, derivational suffixes from verb to noun, derivational suffixes from verb to verb) in Ili (Y?lí) Sal?r Turkish is explained by using some works. It is benefited from works named as “A Sample of Oral Literature of Xinjiang Salars” prepared by Abdurri?id Yakup and “An Ili Salar Vocabulary–Introduction and a Provisional Salar-English Lexicon prepared by Abdurri?id Yakup and “Salar ?bret Sözler” prepared by Ayso Cañ Cinfer. All suffixes are analysed according to their morphological structures and functions and usage in loanwords.
