1. The traditional criteria for defining a proper name The traditional criteria for defining proper name belong to different levels of analysis, which can be divided into three categories [LER 04]. The first category brings together the criteria related to the word forms and those related to their factual nature. Let us first consider the upper case graphical mark, which seems to be a relatively common definitional starting point. g. in German all names, both common or proper, start with a capital letter, and the Georgian alphabet does not distinguish between upper and lower case), it is not valid diachronically (the use of this mark has only been well established since the introduction of the printing press) and it is not significant orally.

1. What is a definite description? If we confine ourselves to words, say, a “definite description” corresponds to a noun (N) preceded by the definite article (the), thus, formally, a nominal group of the + N 16. However, it is not absolutely fair to completely assimilate definite descriptions into nominal expressions defined in their general sense, and, in order to better recognize the type of lexical units falling within the scope of this title, it is important to add further elements to the definition using formal criteria.

The interpretation of the expression the President requires extralinguistic and situational knowledge: in the context of the general assembly of an association, the expression could refer to the member who was elected for this position; while in the context of French television news, the term may refer to the person holding the position of president of the French Republic at the time of speaking. The access to the referent of an incomplete definite description is indirect; it goes through an evaluation of the textual context and the universe of discourse in which the definite syntagm selects a unique entity of its kind.
