I misread the initial "adverb" as "verb", and understood that to be the
main verb, with the {verb-meH noun} at the end being a misplaced purpose
clause. I take responsibility for, and apologize for, that mistake.
However, taking that last bit as the kind of construction you explained
your intent to be, then I don't see a main verb at all. It's not a
sentence. If you intended it to be one, then that's the real error. If it
was just meant as a prelude to the remainder of a sentence, any reanalysis
I might do would likely fail because of missing context.
