This paper presents a Meaning to Word System (MTW) for Turkish Language, that finds a set of words, closely matching the defnition entered by the user. The approach of extracting words from meanings is based on checking the similarity between the user's denition and each entry of the Turkish database without considering any semantics or grammatical information. Results on unseen user queries indicate that in 66% of the queries the correct responses were in the rst 50 of the words returned, while for queries selected from the word definitions in a different dictionary in 92% of the queries correct responses were in the first 50 of the words returned. Our system make extensive uses of various linguistics resources including Turkish WordNet.
