Of links and linkages

I have looked in the dictionary (both Macquarie* AND Oxford**) and I still don’t know why anyone would use the word linkage as a noun when plain old link will almost always suffice. Unless they are using it as a technical term in the field of genetics. Which they seldom ever are.

 

*Preferred in Australia.

**Preferred everywhere else in the known universe.
