Corpus analyses of lexical structures have uncovered different functions that they come to serve in textual organisation. Frequently occurring patterns of lexical items, the multi-word units, display different distributional properties across different genres and contribute to particular discourse structure. This study first presents a typology of tri-grams in Turkish extracted from the Turkish National Corpus. Second, it discusses the distributional properties of most frequently occurring trigrams in fiction and non-fiction texts. The formal and functional typologies presented here help specify genre properties of Turkish texts
