JAFN can frequently introduce comparative clauses, in which case it is tagged either ADVR or ADJR, as in the following examples:

( (IP-MAT (ADVP-TMP (ADV þá-þá))
	  (VBPI læt-láta)
	  (NP-SBJ (PRO-N ég-ég))
	  (IP-INF (NP-SBJ (D-A þann-sá) (ONE-A einn-einn))
		  (VB jarteina-jarteina)
		  (NP-MSR (ADVR jafn-jafn)
			  (Q-N mikið-mikill)
			  (CP-CMP (WADVP-1 0)
				  (C sem-sem)
				  (IP-SUB (ADVP *T*-1)
					  (ADVP-LOC (ADV þar-þar))
					  (BEDS væru-vera)
					  (NP-SBJ (NUM-N tveir-tveir)
						  (ADJ-N einskonar-einskonar)
						  (NP-POS *ICH*-2))
					  (ALSO og-og)
					  (NP-POS-2 (D-G hins-hinn) (ADJ-G sama-samur) (N-G konar-konar))
					  (VAN ritnir-rita)))))
( (IP-MAT (IP-MAT-1 (NP-OB1 (D-A þá-sá) (N-A grein-grein))
		    (MDPI vil-vilja)
		    (NP-SBJ (PRO-N ég-ég))
		    (ADVP-TMP (ADV enn-enn))
		    (VB sýna-sýna)
		    (PP (P 0)
			(NP (PRO-D því-það)
			    (CP-THT-PRN (C að-að)
					(IP-SUB (NP-SBJ (PRO-N hún-hún))
						(VBPI skiptir-skipta)
						(NP-OB1 (N-D máli-mál))
						(, ,-,)
						(ALSO og-og)
						(ADVP (ADVR jafnt-jafnt)
						      (CP-CMP (WADVP-2 0)
							      (C sem-sem)
							      (IP-SUB (ADVP *T*-2)
								      (NP-SBJ (D-N hinar-hinn) (ADJR-N fyrri-fyrri))))))))))

Frequently JAFN occurs in compounds with quantifiers, in which case the compound is tagged ADVR+Q, etc., as in the example below:

	(IP-SUB (NP-SBJ (Q-N bæði-bæði))
									(VBPI stoðar-stoða)
									(NP-MSR (ADVR+Q jafnmikið-jafnmikið)
										(CP-CMP (WNP-3 0)
											(C 0)
											(IP-SUB (NP-MSR *T*-3)
												(NP-SBJ (ONE-N einn-einn) (CONJ og-og) (NUM-N tveir-tveir))))))))
