Subject cTAKES dictionary lookup behavior question
Date Thu, 12 Nov 2015 23:27:42 GMT

cTAKES has a dictionary lookup behavior that I cannot explain, you can verify the queries
via the cTAKES demo that has been posted here at: but it
also happens with the current 3.2.2 version and the fast dictionary UMLS lookup

SENTENCE:  Took  the baby to  the hospital.
            VB   DT   NN  IN  DT     NN    
           |===|     |======|              
           Event     Anatomy               

It finds the "baby tooth" annotation. The only CUI texts in the default fast dictionary for
C1305907 are 

C1305907|primary tooth
C1305907|milk tooth
C1305907|baby tooth

How can "baby to" trigger the "baby tooth" annotation?
