One of the primary requirements of language recognition is, first of all, to grasp the voices and sound structures of that language properly. The variety, similarities and differences of the sounds, sound events in Kyrgyz Turkish like in Turkey Turkish bring different problems in teaching in its wake. The writing and the pronunciation of Turkey Turkish cause confusion at first stage. Moreover, certain sound events of the topics which should be analyzed under morpho-phonologic umbrella; vowel harmony and the haplology of the vowel in the middle syllable in suffixation cause big errors if they are not acquired correctly. Also there appear some adversities in learning the structures created by the suffixation of case suffixes which arise from the similarities of the two languages which belong to the same language family. Furthermore, applying to the phonologic rules of Uzbek, Russian and English as a mediator in order to comprehend Turkey Turkish sound structures there appear some pronunciation and writing problems. On the other hand, some sound events like a phonetic change in the first sound ‘ж’–‘y’; ‘т’–‘d’; ‘м’–‘b’; ‘к’–‘g’, which is the crucial distinguishing criterion in the dialects of Turkish, on one hand makes learning the basic morpho-phonologic rules easier, on the other hand it leads to several complications. In this study, these kinds of difficulties in learning Turkish and their possible reasons have been determined in the sample of the students of KSCTAU (Kyrgyz State Construction, Transport and Architecture University). Besides, the most frequent morpho-phonologic difficulties encountered by Kyrgyz learners in learning Turkish have been introduced and it has provided a basis for an in-depth comparative morpho-phonologic research of Kyrgyz Turkish and Turkey Turkish.
