‘Diwan Lughat at-Turk’ was written by ‘Mahmûd al-Kashgharî’ (1008-1105) during the 11th century. His goal of writing this book was both to teach Turkish to Arabs and also to show that Turkish is a rich language. Diwan Lughat at-Turk is the first lexicon and grammar book of the Turkish Language. This work, however, is not only a lexicon, but also an encyclopedic study which points out the characteristics of the Turkish Language, a grammar book which sets light to the structure and phonetics of the Turkish Language, and a source of person, tribe and place names. While this work contains a broad knowledge of Turkish history, geography, mythology and folk culture; it also informs about the medicine and cure methods of the period. For these reasons, Diwan Lughat at-Turk is a significant reserve for culture, folklore, mythology, customs, traditions, philosophy and geography of Turks. In this article from among the rich materials in Diwan Lughat at-Turk, those related to education will be analyzed.
