Yeah.  Never mind.  I had just woken up and I guess my brain wasn't working right.  It makes complete sense for the OBJECT of {patlhmoH} to be plural with the intent of comparing them.  But for some reason my brain read that the SUBJECTS were being compared and that didn't make any sense at all.  I'm a little more awake now and reading words correctly again.

Is he saying {patlh} can also mean "compare" or {patlhmoH} can mean "compare"? The statement about "compare" comes right after {patlhmoH}, but it seems odd syntactically and it seems odd to say "of course, the object of the verb is plural."

However, I could easily see {patlh} with a plural subject to mean, "they compare".  Could you clarify?

It seems pretty clear that he's saying {patlhmoH} means "compare" with the things to be compared listed as the object.
