# Noun in math mode

this is propably an Ubuntu packaging error; but just to confirm...

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
$\noun{name}$
\end{document}


... this works on your texlive (2009) distribution with pdflatex?

I get Undefined control sequence. on the noun command. Hmm

Where have you got this from? \noun is not a standard LaTeX macro. –  Joseph Wright Sep 28 '11 at 12:43
I use TeX Live 2009 in Ubuntu and I also get Undefined control sequence for \noun. –  N.N. Sep 28 '11 at 12:43

This can't work on any TeX distribution, since the neither the LaTeX kernel nor the article class define a command called \noun.
In order to write text inside math formulas, load the amsmath package and use \text.
Thanks for your answers, I just found out \noun is LyX-specific: \newcommand{\noun}[1]{\textsc{#1}} So I was really looking for \textsc :-) –  eisbaw Sep 28 '11 at 13:20
