    Default proper noun

    Hi there - if the language English and Spanish are used in a sentence, are they consider a proper noun?

    example: Sometime Papa Felix told stories in English.

    Thank you

    Yes. English, Spanish and all other languages are proper nouns and are capitalized. Did I answer the question?

    :)

    They are still capitalised when they are adjectives:
    Spanish leather, etc.

    They must be Proper Adjectives.
