Differ

There are two phrasal verbs coined from this verb that are quite often confused.

To differ from means 'to be dissimilar or unlike', e.g. Her house differs from mine in that it has the staircase at the front.

To differ with, on the other hand, is a formal word used when someone disagrees with somebody, e.g. He differs with me over the value of nuclear weapons.
