    Both mean same thing. The difference between them is being "kayınvalide"'s formal and "kaynana"'s informal attribute..

    which one is more used? According the situation ; both...

    eşimin annesini nasıl çağırabilirmiyim?

    If you are enoughly thick with her; you may address her saying "(Benim) sevgili kaynanam!"; otherwise; "Sevgili kayınvalidem!" does the work as a formal tongue.
