appos: appositional modifier

An appositional modifier of a noun is a nominal immediately following the first noun that serves to define or modify that noun (aposto). It includes parenthesized examples, as well as defining abbreviations in one of these structures. This relation is universal.

appos(modelo, Lx 810)
nmod(modelo, Epson)

appos(Applause, sedã)
O nome oficial do projeto é Depse 1 (Deep Space Program Science Experiment).
appos(Depse 1, Deep Space Program Science Experiment)

In case of more than one appositive nominal, all nouns should be marked as modifying the first noun, rather than being chained:

Para o terceiro réu, Alexandre Cardoso , 21 , o "Topeira" , o juiz determinou uma pena de 20 anos .
appos(réu, Alexandre Cardoso)
appos(réu, 21)
appos(réu, Topeira)

Note however that nested apposition cannot be completely excluded. It may occur in combination with coordination:

Você pode escolher entre quatro matérias : língua ( alemão ou francês) , economia , tecnologia e arte .
appos(matérias, língua)
conj(língua, economia)
conj(língua, tecnologia)
conj(língua, arte)
cc(língua, e)
appos(língua, alemão)
conj(alemão, francês)
cc(alemão, ou)

appos is also used to link key-value pairs in addresses, signatures, etc. (see also the list label):

appos(Fone, 555-9814)
