ABSTRACT
Located on the Eastern Anatolian Region, the province of Bingöl is known for its folkloric richness as much as it is known for its natural beauties. In his work Seyahatnâme ("Travel Book"), Evliya Çelebi could not praise enough Bingöl's prosperous hills and mountains where the sun would set differently. According to today's understanding of folklore, anything that belongs to the people constitutes its culture, thus belonging to the area of folklore. Amongst the subjects of folklore are also dialects. Anatolian dialects have served as resources for the development of the Turkish language in Anatolia and have ensured it becomes a written language. While deciding on a linguistic issue, it is essential to remember the existence of a source and to analyse it via scientific methods. When such a work is not carried out, we inevitably face situations where historical, cultural and most importantly linguistic facts are biased through unsupported erroneous information. From this point of view, Bingöl's folkloric and linguistic specificities draw attention and deserve to be scrutinized. Language not only transfer what we want to say, but also gives us information about what we are and where we come from. Bingöl's cultural characteristics and dialect are seen as richness components for Turkey. In this work, it has been tried to show features belonging to Bingöl's folklore through sources who are themselves from Bingöl, and a thorough research of the Bingöl dialect has been carried out so to expose its internal as well as external (in accordance with other dialects) variances. It is believed that the work will also be valuable in transferring Bingöl's folkloric features to the generations to come.
