    Re: graphic / graphical, use /usage

    I'd use 'graphical' when referring directly to the picture, etc,, and 'graphic' to refer to the area, subject:
    A graphical representation
    A graphic designer
    Graphic- this can also mean full of colourful and usually unpleasant details- a graphic description.

    Use and usage- it depends on the context. 'Usage' is generally for specific situations- a langauge form used in a certain area or by a certain groupd would be a usage.
