Assunto:  Far, farther - to Dale
 
Mensagem:  Thanks for pointing this out to me.  Further is a variation of farther, and I've heard them used interchangeably but not in Example Two.

Correct: London is farther north than Juneau.
(Refers to distance)
I've heard "further" used too.

Correct: This plan requires further study.
(Meaning "additional study," refers to amount)

I've never heard anything but "further" used in such an example.


Correct: According to my timetable, we should be further along.
(Refers to time)

I've heard "farther" used too.
