I need some help with a lexical issue. In my native language we have one word that means "close" both in terms of distance (meters etc) and in terms of distance in time. The same goes for "far" and everything related. So it's very difficult for me do distinguish.
What words could be used to say close in terms of time, and what in terms of distance? Are some of them interchangable, or only reserved for one meaning? The same goes for far. How do you distinguish? I'd be grateful for some help :)
