appos: appositional modifier

Marks appositions in all free apposition constructions. Appositions are marked from left to right.

ⲙⲛ/ADP ⲡⲉⲕ/DET ⲉⲓⲱⲧ/NOUN ⲡ/DET ⲇⲓⲁⲃⲟⲗⲟⲥ/NOUN \n with your father, the devil

appos(ⲉⲓⲱⲧ, ⲇⲓⲁⲃⲟⲗⲟⲥ)
det(ⲇⲓⲁⲃⲟⲗⲟⲥ, ⲡ)
det(ⲉⲓⲱⲧ, ⲡⲉⲕ)

In the example, your father and the devil, refer to the same thing, and have the same function (both relate to with: with your father, i.e. with the devil).

Multiple appositions should fountain out (A -> B, A -> C) rather than chain together (A -> B -> C).
