    Proper nouns: people's names (i.e., John), place names (i.e., Japan), and the names of things (i.e., Microsoft). For example,

    Proper Noun
    I asked Dad to pick me up at 5:00.

    => Dad is his name (e.g., I asked John to pick me up at 5:00).


    Common nouns: another name for people (i.e., pioneer), another name for places (i.e., country), and so on. For example,

    Common Noun
    My dad is picking me up at 5:00.

    => dad is another name for my father.

    All the best, :D
