Our classical literature with its given works, today not only for litterateurs but also for us linguists has an identity of rich source. While various features of the era like countless datas belonging to social life and other cultural values can be followed with the help of these texts, furthermore, archaic features seen in vocabulary and some grammar forms are subjects worth for being studied. Sehî Bey Dîvân about which also we discussed in the frame of this subject, contains important datas from the aspect of having alive archaic elements in Turkish language in XVI. century. It will be noteworthy to give an example for one of archaic forms frequently seen in Dîvân: Whilst in the stave of “Dâğlar halkası geydürdi zırıhlar tenüme / Cebe satmak nic’olur göstereyin düşmenüme” first oneness character order/wish affix –eyin affix as at its own form can be diminished to old Turkish era, today now it left its place to –eyim form. This example is noteworthy in terms of both an element in the past having placed in the text and also its usage couldn’t have reached today. esle word meaning “to listen” in the stave of “Hakkıla ger hak olmag istersen/Zikr-i Hakk eyle sözimi esle” also shows another usage again in Old Anatolia Turkish namely having used in the former era but not able to have reached today. This example, besides grammar forms in terms of being a form seen also in vocabulary is interesting. It will be beneficial for also today’s historical grammar researches to study by increasing the number of these and similar to these archaic forms with samples.

Key Words: Sehî Bey, archaic morphemes, research in historical grammar.
