The verbal existence of the accent that sustain the existence of the verbal language also take place in some literary texts besides academic works such as compiling studies, verbal compilation studies, and folklore resources. It is observed that Turkey Turkish has a place in verbal accent, especially in the accent of Denizli, where childhood passes in his works titled Heba and Birds Yasına Gider in last two novels of Hasan Ali Toptaş who one of the leading names of modern Turkish literatüre. In the study, 95 lexeme belonging to the local language used in other provinces along with Denizli were identified. These lexemes were examined in units of three headings: Lexemes Specified in the Collation Dictionary, Lexemes which have no place in the Collation Dictionary and Lexemes compiled from only Denizli in the Collation Dictionary. The connection between the words and the works is established in the determinations about vocabulary which is also used in the style studies. It is the autobiographical feature of the work. The fact that the Kuşlar Yasına Gider novel is supported by the accent elements and these elements mostly belong to the Denizli province where the author was born supports the autobiographical character of the work. When we compare the two works, especially in the novel named Kuşlar Yasına Gider more words belonging to the locality have been found. This is also an important condition that supports the parallels of the vocabulary with the contents of the work. The vocabulary belonging to the determined local language is mostly the name of the action, the name of the plant, the parts of the house and attribution, the name of the instrument and the tools related to the home and garden. Hasan Ali Toptaş's works are also worth examining in terms of phonetics, morphology and syntax. However except for these subjects, only vocabulary determinations were included in the study. Most of these lexemes which should be emphasized in terms of style studies have been determined in the Compilation Dictionary.
