In natural language processing, electronic dictionaries are used for lexical parsing. Its transform a raw text in a sequence of tagged words ; these tags are morphological and grammatical information. Unknown words make problem. Proper nouns are a part of them. The french Prolex project consists in creating a "tool box" with a relational electronic dictionary of proper nouns and systems of proper noun derivative identification (with the help of rules, local grammars, etc). We present here our data base of toponyms (place names), gentiles (inhabitant names) and derivated adjectives, with their links. Our dictionary is built from the relational database that we introduce here. We justify our choice of a database and we describe the associated environment ; then we deal about the specificity of foreign terms and we present the integration of the data of France and the data of the rest of the world.
