Proper nouns include the names of people, states, cities, streets, rivers, oceans, countries, companies, and institutions.Below are a few examples to help you understand the difference:One common mistake that people make is capitalizing business titles, such as “chief executive officer” or “vice president.” These terms may seem like proper nouns, but they’re actually common nouns and should be written in lowercase. Why? Because many people can hold these positions at various companies.The first letter of a new sentenceThe word “I”Weekdays, holidays, and months of the yearProper nouns So what exactly is the difference between a proper noun and a common noun?
