What determines the case form of a substantive after a comparative hWSEI 
or hWS?


Ex. 15:8  hWSEI LIQOS

Ex 15:7   hWS KALAMHN

Ex. 15:8  hWSEI TEICOS


It seems like hWSEI LIQOS (Ex. 15:8) functions both as an adverb
describing the kind action and also as a adjective describing the
subject of the verb KATEDUSAN. The CASE of LIQOS agrees with the subject
of  KATEDUSAN. In 15:7 the CASE of KALAMHN agrees with the object of the

My question is a simple one. Even though these hWSEI + substantive
constructions function as adverbs does the fact that they agree in case
with a substantive indicate that they also function as adjectives?
