Can use and usage be written interchangeably? Does use include usage under its scope? Does usage has more specific meaning attached to it? If there is any difference, tell me one striking difference so that whenever i tend to use them interchangeably I can avoid doing so.

    Does this answer your question? "Use" vs. "usage" Commented Apr 20, 2020 at 6:10
  • To a fair extent, it answered my question. But can you use "use" and "usage" in a single sentence to make the difference more clear. I am also thinking on it but am not getting an example right now.

  • Since I use air conditioning in the Summer, that usage shows up in higher electric bills for July and August. Commented Apr 21, 2020 at 19:30
