From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]:

Usage \Us"age\, noun [F. usage, LL. usaticum. See {Use}.]

1. The act of using; mode of using or treating; treatment; conduct with respect to a person or a thing; as, good usage; ill usage; hard usage.

My brother Is prisoner to the bishop here, at whose hands He hath good usage and great liberty. --Shak.

2. Manners; conduct; behavior. [Obs.]

A gentle nymph was found, Hight Astery, excelling all the crew In courteous usage. --Spenser.

3. Long-continued practice; customary mode of procedure; custom; habitual use; method. --Chaucer.

It has now been, during many years, the grave and decorous usage of Parliaments to hear, in respectful silence, all expressions, acceptable or unacceptable, which are uttered from the throne. --Macaulay.

4. Customary use or employment, as of a word or phrase in a particular sense or signification.

5. Experience. [Obs.]

In eld [old age] is both wisdom and usage. --Chaucer.

Syn: Custom; use; habit.

Usage: {Usage}, {Custom}. These words, as here compared, agree in expressing the idea of habitual practice; but a custom is not necessarily a usage. A custom may belong to many, or to a single individual. A usage properly belongs to the great body of a people. Hence, we speak of usage, not of custom, as the law of language. Again, a custom is merely that which has been often repeated, so as to have become, in a good degree, established. A usage must be both often repeated and of long standing. Hence, we speak of a "hew custom," but not of a "new usage." Thus, also, the "customs of society" is not so strong an expression as the "usages of society." "Custom, a greater power than nature, seldom fails to make them worship." --Locke. "Of things once received and confirmed by use, long usage is a law sufficient." --Hooker. In law, the words usage and custom are often used interchangeably, but the word custom also has a technical and restricted sense. See {Custom}, noun, 3.

From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) [wn]:

3: the customary manner in which a language (or a form of a language) is spoken or written; "English usage"; "a usage borrowed from French"
