comment Can I “wear an umbrella”?
I might point out that 'wear' and 'use' are often problematic for L2 users of English as they translate confusingly to a number of languages. My most immediate example is the Indonesian pakai which serves as both, but I know this to be true in other languages as well. Fun fact: another common confusion of the same brand is turn on and open.

comment Is the “live” in “He only lived a few days after the accident” intrasitive or transitive?
You're quite right, @AndrewLeach. Edited.

Not sure of the relevance of this response. A cognate object is when the verb and its object are cognate to one another. To relate one to this question, I offer: He lived a charmed life.
