Do we know how {nel} is used in a sentence?

Some of the glosses ("map onto") seem to favor to structure {B nel A.} ("A matches B."), while others (such as "pair up") seem to favor {nel A B je.} ("A and B match.").

There is also the possibility that it could be like {ghom}, where both syntaxes work; perhaps it depends on whether or not the components are equally important (i.e. "these two pieces go together") as opposed to one piece fitting into a larger whole (i.e. "this one piece fits in with the 367 pieces we've already laid out").

Subject: [tlhIngan Hol] qepHom 2018 - Games

The words we received from Maltz for this year's qepHom were not sorted
by any system. I tried to arrange them by topics, which I will use in
the subject line, so the discussions about the words are also sorted.
