farther and further

  • We use both farther and further to talk about distance.
      There is no difference of meaning.
      Edinbwgh is farther/further away than York.
      (Only farther is used in this sense in American English.)
  • We can use further (but not farther) to mean ‘extra’, ‘more advanced’, ‘additional’.
