Going further with farther

Further or farther

The adjectives and adverbs may be interchangeable but there is only one version of the verb - further. From the verb comes furtherance and furtherer, not fartherance or fartherer. And nobody says farther education, only further education. Mixing the adjective farther with the verb further looks like inconsistency even if it may be correct, so my suggestion is to always use further for noun, adjective, verb and adverb. That way you never need to wonder if you got it right.
