Farther vs Further

Farther and Further are mostly interchangeable, but there is a major difference between them.

We use FARTHER when it is about physical distance.

Ex: He climbed farther up the hill.

It is farther than I expected.

We use FURTHER when it is about symbolic distance.

Ex: They need to conduct further research.

She didn’t want to discuss it any further.
