This lesson focuses on some exotic comparative structures. For example:
1) not so much to X as to Y
2) not so much X as Y
3) not so much + noun + as + subordinate clause

# Other comparatives:
Not X but Y
Not X but rather Y
No less/more X than Y
Neither X nor Y
Not only X but also Y
No sooner X than Y
Just as X so (too) Y
so + adjective + as to
