Difference Between Farther and Further

Difference Between Farther and Further

Difference Between Farther and Further

      Many people use “further” and “farther” interchangeable, but, in fact, they mean slightly different things. 

      “Farther” refers to a physical distance, while “further” refers to a figurative distance. 

      So, when wondering how many more miles or kilometers to a particular destination, we’d say, “How much farther to the gas station?”  On the other hand, when speaking of a figurative measure, we should use “further”. For example, “Nothing could be further from the truth.” (Also read : Differences IN ON AT for Adverb of Time )

      Probably the best way to remember the distinction between “farther” and “further” is to think about where we’d use the word “furthermore”.  In this case, we use it much like “in addition to”, which is tied to something figurative. 

      So just remember “farther” = “physical” and “further” = “figurative”.

Other idea about Difference Between “Farther” and “Further” :

A. Farther

      If you’re a stickler for the rules, then farther should be used with physical distance. In other words, if you’re thinking about more miles, more kilometers, more inches, more centimeters, etc., then you almost certainly want farther.
