    сложные слова

    I found these three verbs in texts that I try to undestand. Those text are about Economics and Russian grammar. I really cannot understand their exact meaning in the statements. How would you use them if you give some exapmles? Best.

    облагаться - Прибыль оБлагается налогом
    определяться -мы поговорим, как определяется род имен существительных в русском языке
    употребляться - Как и в других языках, некоторые скществительные употребляются только во множественном числе

    определять - to determine, so определяться is to be determined
    употреблять is to use or to consume (regarding food), so употребляться is to be used or to be consumed
    облагать is a derivative of a verb класть (which is a correct imperfective of положить), which means to put, so when you say прибыль облагается налогом that really means that someone puts taxes on profits or taxes are put on profits
    I do not claim that my opinion is absolutely true.
    If you've spotted any mistake in my English, please, correct it. I want to be aware of any mistakes to efficiently eliminate them before they become a habit.

    Also определять often corresponds to define.
    Определяется = is defined.

    I had to correct your typo, otherwise it could be confusing.
