Today, an additional source to look up toponomies in terms of semantics and etymology is “Tarama Sözlüğü”. Besides Divanu Lugait’t-Turk and Derleme Sözlüğü, Tarama Sözlüğü is also a source for toponomies. On 1935, “Tanıklarıyla Tarama Sözlüğü” , one of the first pieces of TDK, was started by scanning of 135 books in the first place, later by addition of many pieces, it was published as “Tarama Sözlüğü”. Certainly, toponomies are among the words which are scanned from old pieces. In this respect, “Tarama Sözlüğü” is compared with “Köylerimiz- 1933” and toponomies are identified. On the other hand, words which may be candidates for toponomies but do not appear in “Köylerimiz-1933” are determined from “Tarama Sözlüğü” and are listed.

Key Words : Toponymy, Oronymy, Hydronymy, Tarama Sözlüğü, Our Villages-1933
