This reminds me of Toki Pona, which has no proper nouns syntactically; rather, they're essentially adjectives modifying a noun such as jan "person" or ma tomo "city", e.g. "jan Katen" for "Carsten" or "ma tomo Lanten" for "London". (Such proper noun adjectives are also the only capitalised words in the language.) Cheers, -- Philip Newton <philip.newton@...>
