Use or Usage :



“Use” and “usage” overlap somewhat, but they are not entirely synonymous.


Many people treat “usage” as if it were just a fancier form of “use” in phrases like “make usage of,” where “make use of” is the standard expression.


As a rule of thumb, if either “use” or “usage” seems appropriate, go with “use.”
