    much further

    Another trouble.

    'Have we got much further to go?'
    What parts of speech are 'much' and 'further'?

    Adverbs?

    Re: much further

    I'd say you're right insofar as much is concerned. Further works here as an adjective.

    I'd say it's functioning as an adverb.

    In my opinion, they are both adverbs.
