Usage of the word FAR

FAR is usually used in questions and negative sentences:


London isn’t far from Coventry.


Is your job far from your house?


However, in affirmative sentences people usually say “a long way”:


Los Angeles is a long way from New York.


FAR is used in affirmative sentences only when it appears in phrases such as: too far, far away…

The house is too far from any settlements.

The Moon is far away from the Earth.
