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. It includes parenthesized examples, as well as defining abbreviations in one of these structures.

Sam , mon frère , est arrivé \n Sam , my brother , arrived
appos(Sam, frère)
Appelation d'origine contrôlée  ( AOC )
appos(Appelation, AOC)

UD_French-Spoken does not use the appos relation anymore. Instead there are two subrelations appos:nmod and appos:conj.

The appos:nmod relation is used for appositions which modify nominal elements.

la place Voltaire
appos:nmod(place, Voltaire)

The appos:conj relation is used for appositions that respect the prosody of list (the elements of such an appositions are in the same paradigm and have the same referent):

Sam , mon frère , est arrivé . \n Sam, my brother, arrived.
appos:conj(Sam, frère)
