User: How can you tell if a word is a proper noun?

Weegy: A proper noun is a noun that in its primary application refers to a unique entity, as distinguished from a common noun, which usually refers to a class of entities (city, planet, person, corporation), or non-unique instances of a certain class. [ ]

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.
