Ok fellow foreros........ Once again my sister and I are discussing words... we are confused with farther and further...neither one of us can make a clear distinction. I looked in OED and this is what I get: farther = more distant / further = to a greater extent; moreover; see usage on farther. Are these two synonyms or what? To me it looks like a AE/BE difference. Can someone please elaborate? Thanks a lot Sweet T.
