Most Confusing Words in English

Use of Further and Farther

The quick is to use farther for physical distance and further for metaphorical, or figurative, distance.This is not a rule, however, and further is often used for physical distances. The distinction does not exist in the U.K. and elsewhere in the (British) Commonwealth of Nations, where further is preferred for all senses of the word and farther is rare.

Farther:
Meaning: Use farther only when you are referring to distance, literal ,metaphorical or figurative

Example: 
1.It’s farther away than I'd thought. (farther = at a greater distance, physically)
2.The red car was driven farther than the blue car.

Further:
Meaning: Use further only to mean “more”

Example: 
1.I do not want anything further to do with this mess. (further = more)
2.Further research is necessary.


Use of Beside and Besides
Although there's some Confusing in meaning between beside and besides, the two words aren't usually interchangeable.The word beside functions as a preposition and its most common definition is at the side of; next to. The word besides can function as both an adverb and a preposition.

Beside
Meaning: Beside is a preposition. It means ‘at the side of’ or ‘next to’

Example: She sat beside (= next to) him during dinner.

Besides
Meaning: Besides is a preposition or a linking adverb. It means ‘in addition to’ or ‘also’

Example: She wants to learn other languages besides (= in addition to) English and French.


Use of Each and Every 
Each vs. every is a common grammar issue, even for proficient writers, because let’s face it—they’re very similar words.They have similar but not always identical meanings. We always use them with a singular countable noun

Each
Meaning:  refers to a plural number of people or items, but it considers each person or item as an individual or dissimilar unit, it does not consider the group collectively

Example: Each child was reading a different book (dissimilar action)

Every
Meaning: also refers to a multiple number of people or items; but it considers these people or items as part of a similar collective group. If there are just two items or people, every may be replaced by    both

Example: Every child was reading a book. (similar action)

Use of Because & Because of 
Because and because of are both used to introduce reasons. Because is a conjunction, and is followed by a subject and verb. Because of is a preposition, and is followed by a noun phrase or ing verb

Because
Meaning: Because' is a subordinating conjunction that both links and shows the causal relationship between two clauses. 

Example: He couldn't get to the store, because traffic slowed him down. 

Because of
Meaning: Because of is an idiomatic preposition, used to mark a variety of semantic relations.

Example: I couldn't get to the store because of the traffic.
