    Common or Proper Noun

    Hi

    In the following sentence, "The lift supervisor, crane operator, and ground crew attended the meeting."

    Are "lift supervisor, crane operators, and ground crew" common or proper nouns?

    Re: Common or Proper Noun

    If they were proper nouns, they'd start with capital letters.
