Family names and their Dutch and Frisian pronounciations



During the FAME project a dataset was constructed with family names of inhabitants of the province of Friesland in 2007. The dataset was created for the purpose of adding this set to the pronunciation dictionary of the Frisian-Dutch speech recognizer. A list of family names of inhabitants of Friesland (in 2007) was requested from the Centraal Bureau voor Genealogie (CBG). The current dataset only contains the family names that have a frequency of occurrence >5. It lists the family name and possible pronunciation(s), i.e. all names have the Dutch pronunciation and when the Frisian one deviates, the Frisian one(s) is/are added as well. The dataset has a total of 9370 entries.
