( For native speakers) Could you kindly provide me with a very clear and detailed explanation about the difference between " farther and further" ? Thanks a bunch in advance. :)

"Farther" is used to explain or indicate physical distance. For example: "He lives farther away from the train station than me." "Further" tends to have a broader meaning and is not always used to describe distance. For example: "Furthermore, we wish to thank our generous hosts for their warm hospitality." Here it has more of an "in addition to" meaning. I hope that helps to explain things a little bit smile.gif
