The purpose of the DictionaryMaker system is to facilitate the creation of an electronic pronunciation dictionary in a target language, as originally described in M. Davel and E. Barnard, "Bootstrapping for language resource generation". Such a pronunciation dictionary consists of a list of words, each associated with one or more phonetic pronunciations. The developed pronunciation dictionary can be formatted for use by various speech processing applications, such as speech synthesis and speech recognition systems.
