The research of place names constitutes an important part of Turkish culture and linguistics. This science named toponomy helps other fields of science such as history, folklore and geography. Names of places are a guide to historians and linguists in terms of history of settlements. Many a nation has ruled over Anatolia in which we now reside. The governments who last had control of Anatolia began to name where they inhabited. Sometimes they harmonized the old names with their dialects and sometimes they devised a new name. Turks, who were the last rulers of Anatolia, also renamed various territories due to the financial, geographic, military and political reasons. With the foundation of Anatolian Seljuk Empire in Anatolia the Oghuz Turks who migrated to Anatolia from their homeland Middle Asia in groups, began to specifically name the places where they had settled. The most important pieces of work that should be resorted to while the names the Turks gave to parts of Anatolia are being examined, are sources that study the history of that period. One of the most significant of these sources is the work called Tevarih-i Al-i Osman by Âşık Paşazâde.
