PROPN: proper noun


A proper noun is a noun (or nominal content word, or substantive) that is the name (or part of the name) of a specific individual, place, or object. Syntactically a proper noun cannot be preceded by numerals and classifiers but a common noun can. For institutional names that have clear internal structure and contain regular words belonging to other parts of speech such as nouns (e.g., 公司 / gōngsī “company”, 大學 / dàxué “university”, etc.), those words should be segmented as their own tokens and still tagged their native part of speech; only the proper nouns in such complex names should be tagged PROPN.
