Всем привет.

Could anyone be kind enough to help explain to me the differences between the following verbs? I'm supposed to
replace misc. verbs with these as a part of my grammar exercise, but I'm extremely confused...The only verbs
that make some sense are "использовать--пользоваться." Beyond those two, I'm lost.

I vaguely remember learning that one set of verbs is meant for literary/complicated uses, or some such thing, but
I don't remember which one..


Example exercise:
В диссертации были...(банные), которые до сих пор не были ещё опублиованы.

Спасибо за помощь.

использовать is a biaspectual verb.
В диссертации были использованы данные, которые ещё не были опубликованы.
применять is to apply.
употребить слово, употреблять в пищу.
Применить, наверное, использовать как инструмент.
Употребить - использовать с уничтожением, исчезновением объекта употребления.
Но я точно не знаю, не уверен, пишу то, что сейчас в голову приходит.
Постарайтесь писать без опечаток, когда задаете вопрос.
