Hi Ravi,
Yes, in your example "knee pain", the default behavior in the dictionary lookup will create
3 IdentifiedAnnotations
"knee", "pain", as well as "knee pain".

[Assuming the terms exist in the UMLS dictionary]

Subject: Regarding Entity Recognition

First of all Congrats for building such a wonderful software. I am very new to cTAKES so had
a very basic question to ask.
My query is Is it possible to identify multiple words as a single entity, for eg right now
knee pain gets identified as 'knee' and 'pain', but is it possible to get 'knee pain' as single
identity. If so what all changes I have to make to get going.
