Grammar Geek

Here is the explanation of last week's grammar poll:

Further vs Farther

In the simplest of explanations - since that's about all I can handle.
Farther  has the word FAR hiding in it - so it's to do with physical distance.
How much farther is it to the next pub?
Further - is used to describe distance of a non-physical kind (or metaphysical/figurative).
I continue to further my pub-crawling education.
