nmod: nominal modifier

Nominal modifiers are inflected nominals which modify another nominal. If they modify a clause/predicate, they are labeled obl instead. They can occur alone or together with an postposition in an postpositional phrase. Both cases are analysed similarly, as semantically nominal modifiers and postpositional phrases are similar.
