A proper name anomic could retrieve proper names only as a part of an idiosyncratically used association. Besides his problem with proper names he showed difficulties in retrieving any material entertaining an arbitrary link with a given reference. This finding suggests that proper names and any other material that entertains an arbitrary link with its reference are retrieved according to a mechanism that is different from that used for common names. Proper names representations contain only idiosyncratically associated information.
