    Dear DifferenceBetween.net,

    Without expanding on the irony of this particular mistake, this note is to inform you of what I’ll generously call a typo. Since it’s surely an oversight, I imagine you’re not aware of it and would like to be in order to make a correction. In the fourth sentence of the first paragraph, the word ‘quiet’ is used rather than ‘quite’.

    Kind regards,
    ~ Jennifer Terry ~

      Jennifer… learn your words before criticizing others. Quiet means silent. Quite means to a greater degree. The sentence above is correct and the word “quite” is the one to be used. I am Hungarian and have nothing to do with the original post, but I found it funny, that you try to point out and kind of ridicule something that is obviously right.

        That’s what Jennifer had just said, you cow. You misinterpreted her comment. I hadn’t seen the article when it was originally published, however it may have been edited to read “quite”, the correct word in that case, rather than “quiet.” topkek

    Please give an example of “furthest” used as a verb.

      I think the author meant “further” as a verb.

    Just wondering if you could expand upon how exactly “farthest” is the comparative degree of “far”, because in my eyes “farther” would be the comparative degree whilst “farthest” would in fact be the superlative degree.
    Thanks 🙂

    Interesting. It clearly delineated between the two word and gave grammatical explanations and examples. Well done.
