When learning Spanish I always asked native speakers why things where said certain ways. For example, Obtener vs. Conseguir. They would always say "It just sounds right". I have stuck to that rule and used words that are commonly spoken. It really is unexplainable outside of just colloquial preference why certain words are used over others when they carry similar meanings. When in doubt imitate natives and use the common lexicon.
