In this work, idioms with the word akıl in Turkish (akla sığmamak, akıl süzgecinden geçirmek, aklı almamak, aklı durmak, aklı kesmek etc.) have been examined and this study also aimed to explain how mental concepts have been visualized and accordingly metaphorised. There are a total of 102 idioms in the database of the study. Most of them (93 units) were determined by scanning of Güncel Türkçe Sözlük which is on-line use on the web page of Türk Dil Kurumu (date of access: 30.07.2018). Zaltman-Zaltman (2017) constitutes the theoretical basis of the study. Accordingly, in the study, by personal observation method, the sub-metaphorical proposals first obtained with each statement were extracted, then these sub-proposals were placed on specific upper frames (surface metaphors and deep metaphors).
