About

The file proper_names.txt contains a newline-delimited file which contains all of the words in the TLG which are likely proper names (persons, places, etc.). The value of this list is that, since everything is a noun, it may be used as a default POS tagger for these unusual words. The file build_proper_names_list.py shows how this file was made. proper_names.txt contains 144,051 unique.

Important note: This list probably contains some words that are not proper nouns. Its needs to be edited by a human to remove accidental inclusions.
