You could implement the annotator to create CollectionTextRelation object, which is just a
list of annotations I think. But that wouldn't distinguish it from other annotations using
that type like Coreference. Really I guess coreference and text lists should be child types
of that type.

Subject: type for lists/conjunctions

Do we now have type in ctakes type system to handle lists and conjunctions such as in:

Evidence for metastatic disease in the [liver, spleen, pancreas or gallbladder].

The span I’d like to capture is in the square brackets. If we don’t have anything for
this type of annotation, would it be worth creating one? Maybe make it a subtype of IdentifiedAnnotation?
