Smartphones have turned out to be in the centre of human life covering all fields. They can be assumed as an indispensable part of our lives and furthermore they can be symbolized as a new body part of human beings. The reflections of this phenomenon in education was inevitable and smartphones have been successfully implemented into the education, especially language instruction. Mobile applications, which act as the main tools in the integration of smartphones into language instruction, have been used for various educational purposes from grammar, vocabulary, reading, listening speaking instruction to classroom management, measurement and evaluation. Among all, vocabulary apps outnumber other skill-based apps because the functionality and facilities of mobile apps can be effectively used in vocabulary instruction. In this study, a review on vocabulary instruction and Mobile Assisted Language Learning is presented along with an extensive theoretical background. 

Akıllı telefonlar, insan hayatının tüm alanlarında kendini göstermektedir. Yaşamlarımızın bir parçası haline gelmiş ve hatta insanoğlunun yeni organı olarak nitelendirilmeye başlanmıştır. Bu olgunun eğitime yansıması kaçınılmazdı ve akıllı telefonlar, başta dil öğretimi olmak üzere başarılı bir şekilde eğitime dahil edildi. Bu süreçte, ana rolü üstlenen mobil uygulamalar kelime, okuma, dinleme, konuşma becerilerinin yanı sıra sınıf yönetimi, ölçme ve değerlendirme gibi eğitimin birçok alanında kullanılmaya başlandı. Bu uygulamalar arasında, diğer yetenek temelli uygulamaların yanı sıra kelime uygulamaları ön plana çıktı çünkü mobil uygulamaların sağladığı olanaklar ve kolaylıklar kelime öğretiminde etkili bir şekilde kullanılabiliyordu. Bu çalışma, kelime öğretimi ve Mobil Destekli Dil Öğretimi konusunda literatürü tarayarak kapsamlı bir teorik çerçeve sunmayı amaçlamaktadır.
