Abstract

The aim of this study is to show that the words and expressions of daily life, which are included in the printing and give the perception of gender equality, are ideologized by the TLA and to damage the gender equality facility in the society. Individuals interact with each other through the society. The state, with its institutions and rules, has the opportunity to direct and even shape the form and quality of this interaction. At this point, TDK controls the language, which is the tool of social interaction and the interpretation of life. Language is one of the most important tools that enable the society and the individuals to reach mental maturity. It wraps the individuals and society like a membrane and determines the framework of its development. In this context, the attitudes and decisions of TLA on sexist words are discussed in the literature. In this context, in this study, we evaluate the allegations of transferring the responsibility group to the TLA by a court decision and to criticize its relation with ideological attitudes and politics. Gender equality is not the number of studies focusing on TLA. In this sense, it is thought that it will contribute to the field and set a precedent for future studies.
