請問more than後面可以擺動詞嗎?

我在字典裡看到例句:Her intelligence more than compensates for her lack of experience.請問more than 通常不是加上名詞嗎,為何這裡可以加動詞呢?是否可以多舉一點例子給我看,感謝!

    normally, 'more than' compares between two objects; to answer your question, you can't use any 'verb' right after 'more than'....

    however, here, this sentence means her intelligence compensates her lack of experience by a great deal(a whole lot). it does not really compare anything.
