Usage notesModificar

Some usage guides distinguish farther and further, with farther referring to distance, and further referring to degree or time.[2] Others, such as the OED, recommend farther as a comparative form of far and further for use when it is not comparative.[3]

However, most authorities consider the two interchangeable in most or all circumstances,[4] and historically they have not been distinguished.[1][5]
