Euphemisms are language games made by changing the linguistic indications expressing only a concept without changing the meaning of that concept. The goal is not changing the meaning, but to change the negative effect that the meaning has created or to make it bearable. Euphemizations meaning to narrate a concept or event by beautifying it, are expressed with the words such as “iyi adlandırma (good naming), edeb-i kelam (euphemism), hüsn-i tabir (euphemism) in Turkish and as “euphemismus (euphemism) in German. While euphemized words contribute to the richness of the language and the literature, they also offer important data for sciences such as psychology, sociology and folklore as one of the important indications of how the societies perceive any event. Because the meaning the societies ascribed to the words is also an indication of how they perceive the objects or events. From this point of view, it can be considered that the euphemized words used in place of death may provide important clues to the perception of death by societies. Death is a fact that surely every human being must confront, and even though as part of universal culture as a case, it is part of the local culture with regards to its form of being perceived. With this study, it was aimed to analyze the perception of death in the Turkish and German societies over the euphemizations in the death announcements of the newspapers. With this purpose, two newspapers from Turkey and Germany with very similar daily sales figures were chosen and death announcements published in the subject newspapers between the dates 15-30 August 2017 were scrutinized. In the first stage of the study, the euphemizations were determined, and their frequency of use was calculated, and certain classifications were made based on the forms of death perception. In the second stage, the obtained data were interpreted with comparative descriptive method.
