    ''Sülale'' =''Wider family'' describes one's wider famıly. whereas the word ''soy'' =''decendents or root'' ,describes one's more wider social surroundings,such as one's tribe or nationality or race he or she belongs to.''Soy'' can be used to aquire knowledge or to describe one's tribe, nationality or race ,this word can also be used for equıring about or having to explain certain things about animals but not inanimate things.For inanimate things one need to use the word ''kök'' which also means ''root'' yet much more suitable to be used for inanimate things,or events e.t.c.
    examples '' Siz hangi sülaleden kelgen siz? '' which family you came from., ''Soysuz er'' rootless man.A man who does not belong to a certain tribe or race .a bastard. '' Bu soylu bir at '' this is a noble horse.This horse has been proved to have been belonging to a good race of horses.''Soylu er'' a noble man.
    Sülale means familly within relatives. It can also be used for defining one's ancestry.
    Soy defines one's orgin and breed, even race.
