flat: flat structure with no head

flat is one of the three relations for compounding in UD (together with compound and fixed). It is used for proper nouns constituted of multiple nominal elements. Words joined by flat should all be part of a minimal noun phrase; otherwise, regular syntactic relations should be used. In general, names are annotated in a flat, head-initial structure, in which all words in the name modify the first one using the flat label.
