In this study, the meaning and concept of the word "savçı" were examined. In the Old Turkic (8th and 11th centuries) the savçı is derived from the word sav < sab which has the meaning of 'word; news, information; message' and the suffix +çı/+çi. In the Orhon Inscriptions, which are the oldest written texts of the Turkish period of the Kokturk period (8th century) of the Old Turkic period, the word 'sav' is used only in the form of 'Sab' and is also seen in the form of 'sab~sav' in the texts of the Old Turkic period of Uighur. The word "savçı," which means "spokesman; messenger" in the Old Turkic, is generally used as "spokesman, messenger; envoy; prophet" in the Karakhanid, Khorezm, Chagatai and Kipchak Turkic periods. Although this word has lost its meaning in Turkish historical dialects, it still retains its Turkish presence in Turkey. In this study, the relationship between the verb sa-and the words sav and savçı was explained, the historical development of the words was etymologically and phonetically examined, and the meaning and concept of the word savçı was determined. And use of the words sav and savçı in historical Turkish dialects was then shown by the detected examples, and it was emphasized how the word sab~sav, which we suggest is derived from the verb sa-: 1. to count; 2. to consider, and which is generally considered to be the root word, was developed.
