[bioontology-support] Feedback

I'm trying to use the Annotator to identify ontology terms in free text. I'm not sure whether it is suitable for this use case, but I started with something simple:

curl -d "textToAnnotate=river+bank&ontologiesToKeepInResult=42277&longestOnly=true&withSynonyms=false" -s ""

i.e. I would like to search the Environment Ontology for "river bank" (ENVO:00000143). This seems to return "bar" (a synonym which I tried to exclude using the withSynonyms parameter) and "bank" but not "river bank".

Am I doing something wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
