Apposition is a grammatical construction in which two elements, normally noun phrases, are placed side by side and so one element identifies the other in a different way. The two elements are said to be in apposition, and one of the elements is called the appositive, but its identification requires consideration of how the elements are used in a sentence. For example, in these sentences, the phrases Alice Smith and my sister are in apposition, with the appositive identified with italics: * My sister, Alice Smith, likes jelly beans. * Alice Smith, my sister, likes jelly beans.
