Summary/Abstract: The Lexical Phonology Theory, which is composed in the framework of rules and derivations, investigates words in phonological and morphological levels of language. In Lexical Phonology Theory, which studied by many researches as Kiparsky (1982), Rubach (1981, 2008), Mohanan (1982) and Oostendorp (2005), the necessary rules applied for the use of words accepted in two levels: lexical and post-lexical. In the light of above explanations, it is aimed to introduce a new model proposal on how to present the phonological units in a dictionary in the frame of Lexical Phonology Theory by using Turkish Dictionary (2011) published by Turkish Language Society (TDK). The sample group of this research constitutes of samples examples as the consonants /b/, /c/, /ç/, /g/, /h/, /k/, /l/, /n/, /p/, /r/, /t/, /v/, /y/, /z/; the vowels /a/, /e/, /ı/, /i/, /o/, /u/; and, the <ğ> grapheme which play an active role in the sound structure of Turkish. Each unit that constitutes representative samples in noun and verb categories in Turkish Dictionary (2011) regarding to the beginning position of the syllable, mid position of the syllable and final position of the syllable is analyzed by applying the phonological observation technique. As a result of the findings, the many phonological information on phonetic alphabet which shows the pronunciation features, diphthong (tavuk, şair, etc.), phonological functions of the <ğ> grapheme (oğul, iğde, eğer, uğur, etc.), triphthong function of vowel /ı/ (yığıl, etc.), syncope of the consonant /h/ (yemekhane, etc.), and syllable number and position are not found in the Turkish Dictionary.
