As known, semantic profiles of words are stated not only with denotative and figurative semantic aspects, but also with attitudinal values which that word gives to form such as positive, negative or neutral. Those attitudinal values can be evaluated in the discourse prosody studies. In this study, main dynamics of discourse prosody which adjectives of form, adjectives of size, tactile adjectives, auditory adjectives, adjectives of colour and adjectives of taste in Turkish contribute to form are analysed with the demo version of TNC (Turkish National Corpus) -Fictional Prose layer. In the study, descriptive scanning is used as a method and the data found is sorted out with thematic analysis branch of content analysis. As a result, it is possible to state that adjectives contribute with very different attitudinal values from each other to forms, depending on their own connotational areas, collocational areas of sentence parts and discourse prosody features of sentence form appearance.
