    wide range of usage.

    It has a wide range of usage in many different fields.

    Is it grammatical? It seems so to me but I am not sure anyhow.

    Re: wide range of usage.

    I would say: it is used in many different fields.

    Are you sure you mean "usage" and not "use"? "

    Re: wide range of usage.

    Yes, I meant "usage". "Usage" is a noun, isn't it? "Use" is a verb, therefore it does not fit there. Am I right?

    Re: wide range of usage.

    "Use" (pronounced "uze") is a verb. "Use" (pronounced "yew-ss") is a noun.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    "Usage" and "use" are both nouns. The former is often misused and is meant to be used in a restricted context. In the context of your sentence, the correct word is "use".

    "Usage*is how something is used; the fact of something being used is*use; the degree to which something is used is utilization."
