Ambiguity in writing of some types of proper names
Languages of publication
When writing certain types of proper names, some ambiguities that can be caused by several linguistic or non-linguistic factors occur in linguistic practice. Ambiguity can appear in the words and phrases, in which the boundaries between proper names and appellatives blur, and without the mastery of general knowledge about the object it is impossible to reliably determine whether it refers to a proper name or an object in general. Similarly, it is not always clear, whether the phenomenon is to be treated as a special event, or a general event, and whether descriptive names are proper names or not. In our language, however, it is likely to encounter with such proper names, the form of which is currently orthographically difficult to be rationalized. In addition to the above-mentioned issues, orthographic ambiguity, however, may also cause perceiving of some words in the language as proper names while other words in lexical stock with an analogous function are perceived as appellatives.
