Question and answer
How can you tell if a word is a proper noun? Its first letter will be capitalized. It names a specific person, place, thing or idea. It names a general class of people, places, things or ideas.
If it's a noun and it's capitalized, then it's probably a proper noun. Remember, proper nouns are specific people, places, things, or ideas. Since they represent concrete or specific person, place, thing, or idea, they are capitalized.
