Subject Re: Temporal module dictionary

Hi Erin,

I would expect the relation annotator to catch contains(for 4 years, sinusitis) but clearly
it’s far from perfect.

I am surprised it catches contains(4 years ago, *city*) but this is mostly because *city*
is marked as an event (not sure why).

algorithm. Now I'd like to try to use the same dictionary with the temporal module to limit
the extracted relations to those involving events of interest.
