File Format

There is no widely accepted standard format to code pronunciation dictionaries, although such standards are emerging right now. However, in most cases dictionaries formats are an `over-kill' for the simple purpose of pronunciation because they are more concerned with other linguistic data, e.g. syntactic, morphologic, semantic.

If you've decided to include a dictionary in your corpus and have not already specified a file format for it, please refer to section [*] for some basic hints.
