Causatives are part of minds universalities and they are always expressed in all languages. Among several available instruments for encoding causative notion, morphological, lexical, and analytic causative constructions are common in languages. But the frequency and amount of their occurrence are different among them. This research aims in describing and analyzing different types of causative constructions in Azeri Turkish based on Comrie (1989) typological model and knowing about the used methods for causativisation. This research's language variety is spoken in west-north of Iran in Ardabil, eastern and western Azerbaijan provinces. The data are mostly gathered via documental method and interviewing 10 speakers (5 males and 5 females) from illiterate to educated levels in the age ranges of 45-80 years. The results show that based on the prominent typological views, it can be said that in Azeri-Turkish language in addition of using morphological, lexical, analytic, compound, and discoursal causatives, morphological causativisation is much more generative than the others due to agglutinative nature of this language, and potentially every non-causative predicate can change to causative by adding causative morpheme.
