Abstract: Having sufficient resources for language X lifts it from the $\textit{under-resourced}$ languages class, but not necessarily from the $\textit{under-researched}$ class. In this paper, we address the problem of the absence of organized benchmarks in the Turkish language. We demonstrate that languages such as Turkish are left behind the state-of-the-art in NLP applications. As a solution, we present $\textit{Mukayese}$, a set of NLP benchmarks for the Turkish language that contains several NLP tasks. We work on one or more datasets for each benchmark and present two or more baselines. Moreover, we present four new benchmarking datasets in Turkish for language modeling, sentence segmentation, and spell checking.
