nmod: noun modifier

The main use of nmod is for nouns that modify other nouns. This is usually the case when the noun is a genitive modifier or when it is part of a prepositional phrase that modifies that noun.

Die Anzahl der Teilnehmer \n The number of participants
nmod(Anzahl, Teilnehmer)
Das Haus mit dem großen Garten wurde schon verkauft . \n The house with the big garden has already been sold .
nmod(Haus, Garten)

Another use of nmod is when a noun modifies an adjective in constructions similar to the following:

Die mit dem Thunfisch verwandten Arten \n The species related to the tuna
nmod(verwandten, Thunfisch) 

Finally, nmod can also be used when a noun directly modifies an adverb.

drei Monate später \n three months later
nmod(später, Monate)
