             Summary: Ruta: REGEXP from WORDLIST
                 Key: UIMA-3382
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-3382
             Project: UIMA
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Olga Patterson
            Priority: Trivial


WORDLIST is defined as a list of text items. What if I have a list of regular expressions
that I want to mark as the same type. Is there a command that would do it?

My use case is that I want to find medication statements in text, but there is a large variation
in spelling and dose description, so regular expressions are a more concise way to cover all
possible cases. So I was trying to use syntax below, but the only matches were for those cases
where there was a single word without special regex syntax.

DECLARE Medication;
WORDLIST MedicationList='Medication.regex';
Paragraph{-> MARKFAST(Medication, MedicationList, true,1)};

What can I change in the rules so that the items in MedicationList are treated as regular
expressions.
Thank you.
