Assuming you are using an application that uses Mac OS X's built in spell check feature, this is surprisingly easy. A quick Google search (https://www.google.com/search?q=mac+os+x+add+spell+check+language) found this gem (http://support.apple.com/kb/TA21024?viewlocale=en_US).

How odd. Some more research suggests that Mac OS X itself was never translated into Turkish, thus explaining the lack of a built-in Turkish dictionary. This fact surprises me, given how multilingual Mac OS X is.

This is so weird, while there are lots of built in languages including those lesser spoken languages in mac os, how can Apple ignore such a language like Turkish with over 90million native speakers.

This makes me think that this is being done on purpose because of some reasons I endeavour to understand.

This is connected to how much people buy Apple stuff in the country. For example Lithuania also don't have official spelling, but Latvia, who have only 1,5 million people have one. And only because, that 50% of people there buy Apple PC's
