Farther vs. Further

Farther refers to actual distance; further refers to figurative distance and means “to a greater degree” or “to a greater extent”.

  • The drive from the airport was farther (in actual distance) than we expected.
  • Let’s plan to discuss the tournament proposal further (to a greater extent).
  • You can hike farther than I because you are in better shape.
  • We shall go no further with this argument.
