The difference between _bring_ and _take_ has pretty much been eroded, I guess.

OTOH, I was pleasantly surprised to hear a random "{verb of motion)
_farther_" spoken in the wild by someone other than me, not long ago.

This isn't new, IME, but I don't recall that it's been mentioned here,
before. E.g.,

"He walked casually toward the bank guard, the hand holding the gun
hidden _behind himself_."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
