Hello everyone,

We are looking for peculiarities of the grammatical coding of proper names compared to common nouns (and pronouns) in the languages of the world.  In particular we are interested in proper names in S, A and P function and how they differ with regard to word order, case marking and agreement from the treatment of common nouns in a particular language. Are there such differences also in European languages?

This is follow up research of a paper that we gave at the last ALT conference in Leipzig on the morphosyntactic coding of proper names and the Animacy Hierarchy.

I would thank you for any examples you can give,

Best wishes,
Lukas Denk (University of Regensburg)
