<neH> is the only adverbial that functions this way; it is the exception to
the rule. I remember it by thinking of <neH> and <je> (when it is used to
eman "also") in a seperate category together, by themselves; they both follow
the verb. You can also (almost) throw <jay'> in there as well, although it
always comes at the end of the sentence instead.
