Summary/Abstract: The paper focuses on a specific substitution of full proper names with their reduced alternatives. Official proper names of institutions, buildings, places, etc. are correctly spelled with a capital letter in the intital word of the name, whereas lower-case letter is used for the unofficial alternative of the name. However, capitalization in substitute names varies. We analyze particular types of substitution, considering which types are components of the proper names and which types are common noun components.
