This question already has an answer here:
is there any difference between these two words?
I understand that people often use "food waste" to talk about the issue of throwing away too many cooked food
However, it seems to me that it would be more accurate to describe it as "food wastage".
Another interesting point is about an implicit connotation.
Dictionary.com states that: Waste and wastage are to some extent interchangeable, but many people think that wastage should not be used to refer to loss resulting from human carelessness, inefficiency, etc: a waste (not a wastage) of time/money/effort etc
however, when I refer to another book or, such connotation is not acknowledged.
the Guide to English Usage states that: wastage = act or process of wasting; whereas waste = unused remnant.
Can anyone explain to me the difference regarding the two words?
