This paper discusses the chapter on proper nouns of the proposed new edition of the Rules of Hungarian Orthography. It is not the author's intention to give an overall critique of the whole chapter; rather, he discusses problems of detail. The author first gives sets of examples of types of proper nouns that are not covered either by the current regulations or by the new proposal, trying to fit them into the system of rules. Then he points out that, in the case of names of cultural events, spelling practice does not in general follow the rules, and proposes changing the current regulations. Finally he discusses problems of the spelling of adjectival forms of names of institutions. The final conclusion of the paper is that, although the proposal exhibits certain changes in the desirable direction, further modifications will be required in several cases.
