PROPN: proper noun

Definition

A proper noun is a noun that is the name (or part of the name) of a specific individual, place, or object and is usually written with an initial uppercase letter.

Names sometimes consist of lexical words that can also belong to other part-of-speech categories. For personal and place names in Slovenian, the PROPN tag is used (e.g. surname Mlinar “Miller”, village Brdo “Hill”) regardless. However, in organizations and other names, the component words retain their original tags. For example, the noun delo “work” in Delo newspaper, the adjective združen “united” in Združene države “United states”, etc.

Acronyms of proper nouns, such as UN and NATO, are also tagged PROPN, even if they contain numbers (e.g. X5).
