English - Usage Notes

Some usage guides distinguish _farther_ and _FURTHER_, with _farther_ referring to distance, and _further_ referring to degree or time. Others, such as the OED, recommend _farther_ as a comparative form of _far_ and _further_ for use when it is not comparative. However, most authorities consider the two interchangeable in most or all circumstances, and historically they have not been distinguished.
