appos: appositional modifier

An appositional modifier of an NP is an NP immediately to the right of the first NP that serves to define or modify that NP. It also includes parenthesized examples.

Examples:

Tá gearán déanta ag Unison , ceardchumann lucht na mbónaí bána , leis an gCoimisiún \n Is complaint made by Unison , trade-union group the collars white  , with the Commission

In cases where a date string forms a separate clause (potentially introduced by punctuation), the appos label is preferred for the head of the string. Subsequent tokens that are part of the string are attached as flat.

In cases where the sentence can be disjointed, but there is a close relation between the tokens, we use appos.
