Far Usages What does it mean "far behind" "far beyond" "question so far" and "far better" but instead of using far better can I use the word "way better or by far" Ex. "I liked the movie by far" This is a right or wrong application of the word far better instead of by far or way better? Can you give an example of each word to understand the whole context of the word.
