Usage

 

in linguistics, the commonly accepted use of a linguistic unit such as a word or phrase, in contrast to the occasional (temporary or individual) use of such a unit. For example, neologisms are not language units in common usage. The concept of usage is associated with the concepts of linguistic norms and linguistic systems. The accepted usage of language units is generally established by interpretative, phraseological, orthographic, and pronouncing dictionaries.
