Does anybody know when to use "further" vs."farther"? I constantly hear newsreaders say "farther" when in my mind I think they should have used "further." e.g. "They couldn't go any farther up the river due to the rapids." He couldn't swim any farther because of leg cramps." etc.
This drives me around the bend.You see it on Digital Home quite often as it is a common spelling mistake. Misspelling as "Reciever" when it should be "Receiver"
We were taught this verse in school."I" before "E" except after "C", or as sounded as "A" as in "Neighbour" and "Weigh"
I often hear people say they will speak "to" a point or an issue, particularly in meetings (e.g. There are financial implications with this option, and I will speak to that a little later."). Is this correct, or should they not speak "on" or "about" a point?
