Word usage

  • Note
    Both "血统" and "血缘" refer to a kind of natural kinship formed by human beings reproducing offspring. However, "血统" refers to the system constituted by such relationship, so it can be used widely. In addition to family members, it is also used for clan, nation, country, region, etc., such as "亚洲血统"; "血缘" refers to the natural connection of this relationship, and it is mostly used for families or family members.
