About this resource:

This data is a pronunciation dictionary for Danish.

There is a shortage of open domain language resources for Danish, especially for speech recognition. The dictionary is automatically generated using eSpeak and is therefore not subject to license restrictions. It contains nearly 66000 entries, which is not a lot for a compounding language, but the transcriptions are adequate for ASR experiments.

This data was generated for a workshop at the 2013 Copenhagen Speech event at Copenhagen Business School.
