    Re: In More Than

    "In more" doesn't mean anything by itself. You have to attach the "in" or the "more" to other words in the sentence. The quotes below show the attachments:

    1) The peer has "raked in" more than 600,000 pounds. Has earned, has been paid, has stolen, etc.

    2) grow rich in "more than money" -- Grow rich, not just in terms of how much money you have, but in other ways: happiness, enlightenment, etc...

    3) highest level in "more than a century" -- it hasn't risen this high for over 100 years.

    4) The Evergreen State in "more than name" -- not just in the slogan it gives itself, but in reality: could have many evergreen trees, or, in addition, have an "evergreen" -- always fresh, vivacious, active -- population, economy, etc.
