Summary/Abstract: Nogay Turks, the subject of our research, is a Turkish community known as the ancestral homeland known to the Caucasus and migrating to Ankara and Konya in the mid-19th century under the various pressure of Russians. The Nogays brought many literary items to the square with the Nogay Turkish talk they talked about, mostly verbal. One of these literary products is şins, which have grown up in a tradition with their own characteristics and come up to daylight. In this study, the etymology of the word şin and şinşi has been examined. Pronouns and meanings of these words in other Turkish dialects were investigated. We have given information on Nogay’s oral literature şins and tradition of şins, which is a form of verse based on mutual couplets.
