neh, [nex], prep. Introduces a comparative prepositional phrase by modifying a degree word; than, as.

usage: If the degree word modifies a noun, then the object of ‹neh› is always a noun; many comparative constructions are formed by having a relative clause in turn modify this noun. If the degree word modifies a verb, ‹neh› instead takes a complement clause with the complementizer ellipsed as an object; indeed, more of the complement clause may also be ellipsed if it is identical to its counterpart in the clause in which it is embedded, and to which it is being compared.
