The study intended to analyze the general methods of common word-forming in Azerbaijani Turkish language. The aim was to reach this purpose by examining the construction of compound Azeri Turkish words. Sameei (2016) did a comprehensive study on word-forming process in Farsi, which was the inspiration source of this study for Azeri language word-forming. Numerous scholars had conducted various studies about this issue in different languages; however, Sameei's (2016) point of view and his application of variables like 'x' and 'y' were really attractive and considerable, although the absence of such study was quite visible to the Turkish language. Accordingly, this study considered 'x'(s) and 'y'(s) to represent the components of the compound words collected from reliable Turkish bilingual or monolingual dictionaries. Different patterns were introduced to show the structures of the recognized compound words. The compound words were assessed by the process, and also they were contrasted considering their syntactical chain, as Sameei did. Of course, the structural differences between the Turkish and Farsi languages were considered, and words structure were successfully analyzed with their components via the desired variables. The researcher hoped the results of the study would be applicable to wide ranges of audiences, from interested people to people who work for media and those who are active in teaching, education, and cultural areas and also would define compounding and word-forming process in this language on the basis of Sameei's (2016) viewpoint.
