Teşekkür ederim! Why is it I usually see circumflex accents on old Turkish literary works?

Because they are not in use anymore:) I am serious, the authority about the language (Turkish Language Association) asks people and education institutes for not use them. Now you can not see them in any writings in Turkish, but you have to recognise them that they should have one by using in a sentence...
