Ethnology and the Study of Proper Names.
Bean, Susan S.
Anthropological Linguistics, v22 n7 p305-16 Oct 1980
Discusses the importance of uncovering the universal features of proper names and relating them to different naming systems. Suggests that this viewpoint may lead to an appreciation of proper names as a sociolinguistic universal and a cultural variable, beyond the particulars on which most of the literature has focused.
